Blanton's Bond Revoked After Weekend Arrest
Clayton Blanton may have partied one too many times.
Following his weekend arrest for allegedly buying beer for minors, the 21 year old had his bond revoked today on last year's charges of aggravated sexual battery and unlawful eavesdropping.
He was initially granted bond on the weekend misdemeanor arrest. But we're told the Columbia County Sheriff's Office and an assistant district attorney brought the newest charge to the attention of Superior Court Judge Michael Annis, who issued an order for Blanton's arrest, and he surrendered around 5 p.m. today.
Blanton was among several young people charged after a video surfaced with evidence that four people victimized a 19-year-old woman who was passed out at a Martinez party.
Blanton allegedly recorded the video, authorities said. That case has not gone to trial.
He is being held without bond at the Columbia County Jail.
