Investigators showed up at the family's home about 8:30 p.m. They led Casey out in handcuffs to the cheers of waiting protesters. The charges stem from allegations Casey took money, possibly from family or friends. Investigators say they have images of Casey using checks at stores around Orlando. "She had used names and checks in an account that didn't belong to her," said Capt. Angelo Nieves of the Orange County Sheriff's Office.
Anthony was being held on a $3,000 bond Friday night. The family would have to post $300 to get her out of jail if a judge agrees to that bond amount. Routinely, inmates would appear before a judge around 11:30 a.m., Saturday morning. This happened after a tense and volatile day at the family's home. Protesters showed up early Friday evening, demanding Casey go back to jail. However, the protests referred to charges Casey Anthony already faces related to the disappearance of her young daughter, Caylee.
Friday was the 45th day since Caylee Anthony was reported missing and early in the morning, it appeared the bounty hunter who had helped bond Casey out of jail on the original charges was ready to revoke that bond and send her back behind bars. But he and Casey's attorney worked out a deal just before noon Friday and Casey did not go back to jail then. Also Friday, subpoenas were issued to the Anthony family telling them they may have to testify in a trial scheduled to start on November 17.
A group is planning to search Saturday for Caylee's body near Orlando International Airport and more protesters are expected to come to Casey's house Friday night.
George Anthony hit the roof Friday afternoon when two protesters set up camp right in front of his home, throwing chairs and yelling. George's pastor had to hold him back as he unloaded on two men who set up chairs and an umbrella in his card. They came to the house hoping to see Casey hauled back to jail.
"We're just here to watch her be arrested,"
As evidence mounts that Caylee is dead, the Anthony family seems to have no end of conspiracy theories. They blame everyone but Casey. "Maybe someone put a body in the car after it was towed to the tow yard. Why don't you talk to them about their security?" Cindy Anthony said Thursday evening.
The building drama is even making drama-king Leonard Padilla nervous for the media. "I don't want you guys sitting there talking to Cindy when she's got a hammer in her hand," Padilla said Friday morning. Padilla also fears for Casey as she travels back an forth from her attorney's office. "I think somebody can take a shot at her," Padilla said.
There's also word from the Internet that more protesters are coming to the Anthony house Friday night. Internet chatter is rampant that Casey will have a large crowd that will insist she be taken back to jail.
