Justin Collison, 21, arrived at the Seminole County jail in Sanford, Fla., at 8:01 a.m. A warrant had been issued for his arrest charging him with aggravated battery. He paid $4,000 bail and was to be fitted for a monitor before he could be released. Seminole County Jail intake clerk Jennifer Litterelle told ABC News that the GPS monitor is not a house arrest bracelet and is only used to "track his whereabouts," adding that Collison is not confined to his home.

The warrant was issued for Collison Dec. 29 of last year after a video revealed him punching a homeless man in the back of the head outside of a bar. The video shows Collison walk up behind Sherman Ware, 48, punch him in the back of the head and leave him unconscious on the sidewalk.

Ware had to be hospitalized and, according to the Orlando Sentinel, he suffered from a broken nose as a result of the attack.
