GAY PORN ACTOR ROB VAN DAMME ARRESTED AND DENIED BAIL BY FEDERAL AUTHORITIES

Gay Porn Actor Robert van Damme was arrested by local authorities on May 21, 2010 in Orange County on charges of domestic violence and contempt of court. Damme, whose real name is Robert Kovarik, had his bond set at $100,000.
David Forest who is Robert van Damme's agent, told JRL "I was just advised by the James A. Musick Facility (an Orange County Jail).... that Robert did in fact appear in court yesterday Thursday May 27th.
He has 2 active cases. Bail on one of them IS $100,000. However, on the 2nd case, there's a NO BAIL HOLD which makes it impossible for him to get released at this time. His next court appearance is set for Monday June 7th, 2010 in Div. W3 of the West Justice Center in Westminster."
According to SFGN.com, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say that the Czech Republic native has been hit with a federal detainer that prevents him from bonding out of state prison. Even if he were to post bail, he would be held in federal custody and brought before a U.S. magistrate judge.
"I can’t comment on what he’s wanted for abroad because that’s not of a public record,” said Nicole Navas, a spokeswoman for ICE in Miami. “I can just confirm that ICE special agents placed a detainer on him.”
According to officials at the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, a ICE detainer means federal officials believe the suspect doesn't have the legal basis to be in the U.S. and once the local case against him ends, Damme will be transferred to the local federal facility at which point he will be processed for deportation or extradition.
Van Damme has performed for gay porn labels Falcon Studios and Mustang Studios and has been attempting to get his RVD Films label off the ground over the past year.
“The state could drop the charges and allow the demanding country to remove him immediately.
Depending on the severity of the allegations against him, Federal agents could move very quickly,” states Ric Rosenbaum, a federal criminal defense attorney in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
