The affidavit of probable cause goes on to report that Marc said when the informant arrived he would allegedly be able to [expletive] him or her up. The third party told Marc he didn't want to be involved.

Lisa is now out on bail, but Marc remains behind bars.

He is charged with witness intimidation and solicitation to commit assault. He also faces two drug-related charges.
