Bond set for CeaseFire head Tio Hardiman in domestic battery charge

June 1, 2013 (CHICAGO)

ABC7 caught up with Hardiman as he was leaving the jail following an afternoon court appearance. He was represented by a public defender.

Hardiman was arrested Friday after an argument with his wife allegedly turned physical at the couple's hillside home.

"I am Mr. Ceasefire and I got caught up in a situation and I am not here to point fingers and blame nobody," Hardiman said. "The verdict is still out. I can't really speak about the case. Things happen for a reason and liberation comes in many forms."

Hardiman was released on a $20,000 bail.

CeaseFire says it will take action against Hardiman based on a complete understanding of the facts in the case.
