A change in the weather?
Despite Public Defender Norman Butler's courtroom pleas, Demont Forte had his bond yanked and he was taken into custody in the courtroom by Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Deputies this afternoon.
It was not clear what swayed Mecklenburg Superior Count Judge W.R. Bell but it is possible the attack on a female motorist was a little too far over the line.
Violation of the conditions of being released pre-trial are pretty straight forward - don't get arrested. Which sadly Mr. Forte has excelled at.
The next hearing date on the weapons and drug charges is August 30, 2021 but there's a chance Mr. Forte will bond out at some point in the near future. However, the Habitual Felon team has apparently taken notice of Forte and if you're a defendant they are not your friends.
The prior posts on Mr. Forte are here:
Interesting to note that CMPD like many in the Law Enforcement community classify road rage as a "targeted attack" and that the general public is not at risk. Nothing could be further from the truth. These are random attacks on random motorists by violent criminals that perceive the smallest, slight or in many cases no reason at all to attack someone in a violent manner.
These people are a menace to all of society. Anyone can be a victim of their rage and prosecutors and judges owe it to civil society to see that these people are permanently incarcerated and their driving privileges never restored..
