Raleigh Bail Bondsman Accused of Felonious Restraint

RALEIGH -- Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin today announced the arrest of Adrian Bernard Dais, Jr., 31, of 2022-C Quail Forest Drive, Raleigh; he is charged with one count of felonious restraint.

Dais was arrested on Dec. 16 in Wake County and released under a written promise to appear in court.
