YSL attorney released on $5,000 bond

He was initially charged with simple battery on a law enforcement officer because his cellphone brushed a deputy as he passed it to a fellow attorney while being detained, his lawyer, Brian Tevis, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. That charge was later dropped based on eyewitness accounts, he said.

Manettas, 32 faces five charges stemming from the incident, including possession of pills not in their original container, obstruction, disrupting court proceedings, possession of dangerous drugs and having a Schedule II controlled substance. The controlled substance charge is a felony; the other four counts are misdemeanors.
