More bail imposed on Hoopfest suspect

A teenager arrested in connection with a shooting at Hoopfest on Saturday will need to pay an additional $50,000 bond to get out of jail, and if he does get out, he'll be on home detention.

Prosecutors requested the additional bond for Adam Doe for assault and riot charges related to an October 2009 stabbing after Doe was arrested at Hoopfest. Doe, 19, was released from jail on his own recognizance in December under the condition he not possess weapons and he not commit crimes.

The $50,000 bond, requested by Deputy Prosecutor Steve Garvin and approved by Judge Ellen Kalama Clark, is in addition to $200,000 bond imposed Tuesday in District Court, where Doe is charged with third-degree assault and unlawful possession of a firearm for the Hoopfest incident.

Under Garvin's request, If Doe posts bond, he'll be on home detention and will only be allowed to leave his home between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. if accompanied by his mother or father. Doe's mother has told court officials he isn't welcome at her home, a judge said Tuesday.

Doe's public defender, Dennis Dressler, has said Doe was close to resolving the stabbing charges when he was arrested.

Dressler declined to comment today on the proposed plea deal, saying Doe's new arrest "put a little bit of a wrinkle" in it.

Doe remains in Spokane County Jail, along with suspected gunman Miguel C. Garcia.

Garcia faces three counts of first-degree assault after police said he fired a gun during a gang fight at Hoopfest. The bullets hit three bystanders.
