Mark Bell, 41, a Marion County High School assistant boys basketball coach, was arrested Wednesday by the Marion County Sheriff’s Office on a bench warrant for contempt of court stemming from a civil matter.
His bond was set at $15,781.61. Bell has been accused of failure to pay child support based on an affidavit filed by Philip George, the Marion County Friend of the Court.
Bell was originally held on a “pay or stay” bond, which would have required him to pay the bond in full before his relief.
On Thursday, Marion Circuit Judge Allan Bertram signed an order allowing Bell to be released on $300. John Bell posted the bond on Bell’s behalf that day.
A review hearing has been scheduled for July 7.
