As Newsweek noted, Scruggs got better bail than some of the accused in the January 6 case.

The number of protesters facing federal charges has surpassed 1,100, with more than half pleading guilty. Over 100 have been convicted on all charges, but many still face trial, and some are held without bail.

Meanwhile, Scruggs has been charged with aggravated battery, aggravated assault, and armed burglary.

Scruggs posted $65,000 bail the same day he was arrested in Tampa, Florida.

He is accused of breaking the window of a vehicle that hit his sedan on Interstate 275 on Tuesday morning and stabbing the driver, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Scruggs also allegedly attempted to stab a couple who stopped to help the victim and then fled the scene.

He was apprehended by police shortly after and arrested on charges of aggravated battery, aggravated assault, and armed burglary.

The victim was hospitalized for serious injuries.

Scruggs was released from the Pinellas County Jail on Tuesday evening after posting the $65,000 bail.

He posted it before an advisory hearing so his bond doesn’t include any conditions, but it’s possible a motion will be filed to add conditions at a later date.

According to Tampa10:

Troopers said they learned a 35-year-old man had stopped in the travel lanes and was slumped over for an “unknown reason” inside his car.

Then, a 40-year-old man driving along the bridge saw the man slumped over and looking unwell, so he and his wife stopped their car in front of him to see if he was okay, FHP said. 

The 40-year-old couldn’t get inside the 35-year-old’s car, so he went back to his car in order to find something to break the window and help him. 

Before he could do that, however, troopers said the 35-year-old man came to and started driving forward. 

But rather than getting back on the road and on his way, troopers said the 35-year-old first hit the couple’s car, then reversed and tried to go around, only to crash into Scruggs’ car as he drove past the incident. 

Troopers say Scruggs stopped his car, got out, went up to the 35-year-old’s car, broke the window, and began stabbing him multiple times with a pocket knife.
