According to his attorney Shawn Holley, who spoke exclusively to Metro.co.uk: "The DA requested that Mr. Peterson’s bail be revoked or, in the alternative, that it be increased to $5 million. We are pleased that the Court rejected those outrageous requests".

"Additionally, the judge found sufficient evidence today that he violated the order of protection and had him handcuffed in the courtroom. The self-serving noise in this case will not change the facts or prevent this case from proceeding" he added.

After Lanez's bail was posted, he took to Twitter, hinting at this arrest by tweeting: "God will make a table for you in the presence of your enemies".
