As of Monday, at least nine bikers arrested after the Twin Peaks shooting were released from the McLennan County jail on reduced bonds.

Three more bikers who were arrested after the Twin Peaks shooting are out of the McLennan County Jail on a $25,000 bond Friday. Bohar Lee Crump Jr., whose bond was $25,000 on Friday night, was no longer in jail as of the following Monday, June 1.

The attorneys for Juan Carlos Garcia, Drew King and Jim Harris requested bond hearings to lower their $2 million bonds, which were scheduled for June 5. However, their attorneys reached an agreement with the McLennan County District Attorney's Office a week before that hearing.

The three Austin area bikers were released under restrictive conditions, including wearing an ankle monitor and having a curfew.

Garcia and King were released on a $50,000 bond each on May 18, one day after the shooting. Jim Harris was released on a $20,000 bond that same day.

Waco police say their bond was originally set low, but a judge revoked it because of the seriousness of the crime.

King's attorney, Christopher Gunter, said his client was charged with the state jail offense of engaging in criminal activity on May 17.

After his client posted a $50,000 bond on May 18, a warrant was issued for his arrest and the bond was set at a $1 million. King was also charged with the first degree felony offense of engaging in organized criminal activity and the bond for that additional charge was also set at $1 million, according to Gunter.

Gunter said he did not know why the total bond was set at $2 million.

King drove with two bikers who are part of a children's advocacy club, Grim Guardians of Slaughter Creek, to the Twin Peaks parking lot at the time the shooting happened.

He said King left his motorcycle running and went another direction to hide behind a car. Gunter said his client was arrested because he was at the scene of the crime. He was also wearing a wallet chain at the time.

As of Friday, eight bikers had been released from jail. Another biker, Bohar Lee Crump Jr., whose bond was reduced from $1 million to $25,000 bond, remained in jail Friday night. As of Monday June 1, Crump had been released out of jail.
