Patrick Clark, the suspect in Takeoff‘s murder, was released on Wednesday after a “concerned citizen” stepped up to secure his $1 million bond.
According to Clark’s attorney, Letitia D. Quinones, the “concerned citizen” is a family friend who believes in Patrick’s innocence.
The attorney released the following statement to XXL:
Neither Patrick nor his family posted the bond in this case. A concerned citizen and family friend who believes in Patrick’s innocence posted the bond on his behalf.
Like any other defendant, Patrick is presumed to be innocent and has the right to bond. He also has an obligation to comply with all the terms the court has laid out.
He intends to comply fully and will appear for proceedings whenever the court requires him to do so.
We believe Patrick is innocent and at the appropriate time, the evidence will reveal that to be the case.
On December 1, Patrick Clark, also known as DJ Pat, was taken into custody and charged with the November 1, 2022 murder of Migos rapper Takeoff (born Kirshnik Khari Ball) outside of 810 Billiards & Bowling in Houston.
According to a search warrant, surveillance video captured Clark discharging a firearm multiple times in Takeoff’s direction.
Clark recently asked the judge to approve $5,000 for him to hire a private investigator to help him “properly investigate his case and to prepare effectively for trial.”
The request was made because Patrick Clark stated his family had exhausted all of their financial resources on his attorney.
So, the news of Clark making a $1 million bond left folks scratching their heads.
The name of the “concerned citizen” has not been disclosed.
