White turned herself in Tuesday after a warrant was issued for her arrest. She has posted a $10,000 bond today and is awaiting release. White is to remain under house arrest with an ankle monitor and stay off of social media.
Brooks was married to Tomika Miller.
Here at the Fulton County courthouse a judge set Wendy’s arson suspect Natalie White’s bond for 10-thousand dollars, while rejecting the defense request for a signature bond. When and if she is released from jail, she will be under house arrest with an ankle monitor. @wsbtv pic.twitter.com/m5WuAgU5et
