Probus was charged with attempted murder of a police officer after he reportedly shot Officer Wes Singleton on Jan. 8. Singleton and other officers were conducting a narcotics warrant at a home off Eden Lane when the six year veteran was shot multiple times in the legs.

Probus pleaded not guilty on Jan. 25. He is being held on a $250,000 full cash bond.

During his appearance, Loretta Harris, a co-defendant in this case, had her bond reduced from $25,000 to $10,000.
