AUBURN, Ala. (WSFA) - Court records show that a motion to revoke the bond of Johnston Taylor was filed Wednesday.

Taylor’s bond was previously revoked but later reinstated in April 2020.

The details of this latest motion are unclear.

Taylor, who is now 18, was also scheduled for a youthful offender status hearing on Tuesday. The outcome of that hearing is also unclear.
