The amount of his bond wasn’t immediately known. Miguel’s record label declined comment on his arrest.

He was ordered to pay his former manager, William Brockhaus, more than $1 million in July 2016 by a federal judge in New York. Brockhaus’ attorneys sought to enforce the judgment in Los Angeles, where Miguel owns a home.

Miguel had surrendered to authorities earlier Tuesday after being held in contempt for failing to appear at court hearings.

Deputy US Marshal Matthew Cordova says the singer, whose full name is Luis Miguel Gallego Basteri, was released on bond after appearing before a federal judge in Los Angeles Tuesday.
