The man charged with the murder of Takeoff has been released from jail on a $1 million bond. This is according to court records. Patrick Clark was accused of killing one-third of the rapper group ‘Migos‘ in Houston, Texas late last year. He is due back in court in a couple of months.

$2 Million Bond Cut In Half

The bond was originally set at $1 million more than what the judge approved. However, Clark’s legal team got him a reduction by half last month. Supposedly arguing the figure was unconstitutional at $2 million because he was unable to afford it.

His attorney said prior to the murder suspect’s family was ready to give away their Houston home to bond Clark out of jail.

Clark’s Legal Team Disagrees With Judge

The charged murder suspect’s attorney, Letitia Quinones, said, “although we respect Judge Hill as well as his decision today, we disagree with it and to be honest we’re very surprised by it.”

His lawyer was confident the bond would be reduced to the amount Clark’s legal team argued for at $300,000, after complying with the judge’s bond conditions.

Bond Agreement Requirements

The murder suspect’s bond agreement requires him to comply with GPS monitoring by wearing an ankle monitor.

Tragedy Took Place Last November

The 33-year-old suspect allegedly killed Kirsnick Khari Ball, stage name ‘Takeoff,’ by gunfire outside a private property at a Downtown Houston bowling alley. This tragedy took place last November, and two other people were injured in the process.

Authorities said the 28-year-old rap star was just an innocent bystander to a “lucrative” dice game. Quavo and other men took place in the game as well. But a dispute took place during the game leading to various shots being fired.
