Printup was arrested early Friday morning in Howard County on a motion to revoke his bond on his marijuana charge in Tippecanoe County.

Tippecanoe County Prosecutor Patrick Harrington says one of the conditions of his bond was good and lawful behavior.

When Printup was charged in Jasper County for carrying a handgun without a permit, possession of a controlled substance and marijuana, Harrington argues he violated his bond in Tippecanoe County.

Now, the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Department will pick up Printup from the Howard County Jail and bring him to the Tippecanoe County Jail.

There is no law requiring the county to do this in a timely manner. He could be in the jail for a while until a new bond is set by the Tippecanoe Superior Court Judge.
