In total, Meyer will have to pay $50,000 and abide by conditions or pay $100,000 unconditional bail to be released.

Meyer agreed to abide by the conditions in court Monday, including reporting to Freeborn County Court Services three days a week, signing a waiver of extradition, not using alcohol or mood-altering chemicals, staying away from bars, obeying the law and being subject to random testing.

Meyer was convicted of possession of methamphetamine in January 2004.
