He was previously out of custody and awaiting a September sentencing when he was arrested for allegedly destroying evidence and 11 counts of breach of conditions.

Furman will be back in court Aug. 8 where he may seek bail again.

His previous bail conditions had a ban on going near any school in the Central Okanagan and he was not allowed to possess a cellphone or any other device that can access the internet.
