JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jerry Daniels, who was 16 years old when he was arrested in the 2012 raid of a Middleburg meth house that ended in the death of Detective David White, is back behind bars after violating his probation in South Carolina.

Ted Tilley, who fired the shots that killed White, was shot and killed by other deputies. Daniels, along three others who were in the house at the time, were charged in connection with Whilte's death.

Daniels pleaded guilty to manslaughter and manufacture of meth, and was sentenced to three years time served and five years of probation. With the approval of White's family, Daniels was released to the custody of his grandmother in South Carolina to serve his probation.

Daniels, now 20, was arrested last week for possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He remains in jail awaiting a hearing.
