PLANTATION (CBSMiami) â€” It took only a moment to drop a $1Â millionÂ bond down to $5,000.
Bruce Jorgensen is getting out of jail. Heâ€™s the father who kicked his son Aage â€” an American Heritage High school student â€” out of the car after an argument. The teen has not been seen since December 27th.
â€œWhen weâ€™ve had, him heâ€™s a good little boy. But he just likes to run away and hide,â€ said Francis Jorgensen, the teenâ€™s grandmother.
His grandparents told CBS4â€™s Ted Scouten that while AageÂ is known to run away, theyâ€™re still concerned for his welfare.
â€œHeâ€™s wandering around, we donâ€™t know where he is. Of course, weâ€™re concerned,â€ she said.
Bruce Jorgensenâ€™s attorney showed fliers and newspaper articles from previous incidents whenÂ hisÂ child left.
One reason bond was initially set at $1,000,000 is because prosecutors were afraid the father would flee. They said he had a one-way ticket to New Zealand.
His attorneys, however, say police just didnâ€™t look hard enough â€” it was a round-trip ticket. They also say thereâ€™s evidence showing BruceÂ had no plans on leaving, nor anything to do with his sonâ€™s disappearance.
â€œWe have a copy of the full range return ticket, a full yearâ€™s in school paid for in advance at American Heritage, at least, for a whole year an apartment. All his applications for college, he made for his kid,â€ said Glenn Roderman, Bruceâ€™sÂ attorney.
Roderman added that his clientâ€™s final destination was the Northern Mariana Islands and is also an attorney, who was under a judgeâ€™s order to appear in court.
