Black Voices for Trump activist jailed for days after surrender in Georgia RICO case should be thrown back behind bars for ‘flagrant violations’ on social media, DA urges
The Black Voices for Trump activist who spent days in jail following his surrender in Georgia election racketeering (RICO) case being prosecuted in Fulton County should head right back to jail due to “numerous intentional and flagrant violations of the conditions of release,” Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) argued in a Wednesday motion.
At the start of the Georgia RICO case, Harrison William Prescott Floyd stood out as the only one among 19 defendants who was jailed in Fulton County after being booked. It was revealed that, unlike other defendants including former President Donald Trump, Floyd had not negotiated a bond in advance of his surrender. In addition, Floyd, who served in the U.S. Marines and had been a professional MMA fighter, was separately charged federally in May for allegedly assaulting a federal officer who was attempting to serve a grand jury subpoena.

Five days after his surrender, Floyd was finally released on a $100,000 bond, a bond DA Willis sought to revoke on Wednesday.
“Since November 1, 2023, the Defendant has publicly tweeted multiple times from the Twitter account @hw_floyd in an effort to intimidate codefendants and witnesses, to communicate directly and indirectly with codefendants and witnesses, and to otherwise obstruct the administration of justice,” Willis said. “The Defendant’s Twitter account has approximately 25,000 followers who can view his public tweets.”
