On Wednesday, Natalie White made her first appearance in court for charges of first-degree arson related to the fire of an Atlanta Wendy’s that took place during protests sparked by the killing of Rayshard Brooks by a police officer in the Wendy’s parking lot.
White’s bond was set to $10,000 and she is ordered to remain on house arrest with an ankle monitor. She must also stay off social media.
White’s attorney, Drew Findling did confirm to CNN that White knew Brooks, “but I will not comment on the extent of their relationship.”
Findling said he wanted to keep the focus on what he called the “tragic and unnecessary death of Rayshard Brooks,” whose funeral was held Tuesday.
In body camera video released by police, Brooks can be heard telling the officers who questioned him that Natalie White was his girlfriend.
