HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. - A father accused of shooting and killing his 11-year-old daughter has failed a drug test after bonding out of jail.
The District Attorney confirmed Friday Timothy Batts failed a drug test that he took on Monday. Batts tested positive for benzoylecgonie, the compound tested for to discover cocaine use.
After the judge cut Batts’ $1 million bond in half to $500,000, he also instated multiple stipulations for when Batts bonded out. One of those was that Batts would be on supervised bond and would have to pass a drug test.
The judge had also said Batts could not pick up any new charges or he would be sent back to jail.
Batts has been accused of shooting and killing his 11-year-old daughter, Timea, which he claimed was an accidental incident after she returned home from school. He bonded out of jail on Friday, August 12.
The District Attorney said the decision to send Batts back to jail based on the failed drug test would be up to the judge since Batts violated the terms of his probation.
The judge has agreed to hear the motion to revoke Batts' probation at 9 a.m. on August 26.
