Tiger King’s Doc Antle is currently a subject of much controversy. Doc Antle has been arrested by the FBI in South Carolina on June 3rd for money laundering. Antle now has 100 reasons why the judge should release him from jail.
He was accused of laundering $500K as well. According to TMZ, Antle wants to be released from custody as he awaits trial in his federal money laundering case. When it comes to getting released, he is trying to use all the reasons he can find.
As revealed by legal documentation, Doc Antle is asking a judge to allow him to post bond because he apparently has a lot of health issues. This includes atrial fibrillation and high blood pressure, which make it risky for him to be jailed because of COVID-19.
He claimed COVID-19 would worsen his condition, especially with his heart problems. In addition to that, he cited his sleep apnea, torn rotator cuff, torn meniscus, dislocated collar bone and significant discomfort from old fractures suffered in a car wreck from many years ago.
He then insisted that his old mother, who has dementia, is supposed to be back under his care soon. Antle then claimed that his Myrtle Beach Safari resort is liable to fall into a state of disarray without his leadership.
Prosecutors say Antle is a flight risk because he has the resources to simply run away. If convicted, he’ll be jailed for a long time. We’ll keep you updated on this ongoing story.
