Detroit Officer Who Assaulted A Man Released On Bail.

Detroit officer Lonnie Wade, 65 was released late Thursday. Hours earlier the officer was being held on $50,000, 10 percent bond and ordered to wear a GPS tether if released. 

The new bond does not require him to wear the electronic monitoring device.

Prosecutor say Wade, who was off-duty at the time of his alleged crime, assaulted a man on Oct. 10 at the Meijer grocery store in Detroit.

Wade allegedly believed 23-year-old David Bivins was shoplifting, but he reportedly had a receipt for the items. A video recording of the beating went viral.

Wade was charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and felonious assault. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $5,000.

Wade was arraigned on charges connected to a violent incident at a Meijer on 8 Mile in October. It was caught on camera. He was off-duty and working security at the time and beat a man he suspected of shoplifting with a baton.
