UPDATE: 5:56p: A quick email to Sharon Bock, the longtime Clerk of Courts for Palm Beach County seems to have solved the misunderstanding. Here is the “bad check” form that led to Natalie Matus’ arrest. It seems she wrote bad checks to “Quick Weight Loss Centers.” Interestingly, the checks were for under $1000 combined. Her bond was $6,000 to get out of jail.
UPDATE: As of 4:45p, the Palm Beach County Clerk’s Office is refusing to release the bad check report. We are continuing to effort.
