Bond was denied Tuesday afternoon for Dustin Gold, 31, a talent manager based in Connecticut who is charged with aggravated assault in the stabbing of Marcus Fox, a 38-year-old reality TV show producer.

Sheriff's deputies were called about 6:15 a.m. Sunday to a home in the 5000 block of Hulsey Circle off Browns Bridge Road in Gainesville.

Witnesses told deputies that the two men had been working together since Thursday and the stabbing resulted from a verbal argument that turned violent, Hall County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Kiley Sargent said.

Magistrate Judge Tracy Loggins denied the bond at Gold's first court appearance at 2 p.m., saying he may be a flight risk since he is not from the area.

"Certainly it was a difficult situation that our client was faced with, and our heart goes out to the victim and his family," said Mike Jacobs, an attorney for Gold. "Our client feels strongly that he hopes (Fox) recovers pretty well and quickly."

Scott Smith, another attorney for Gold, said his client and Fox were in Gainesville working on a reality TV show. They were filming Saturday at a local car dealership that hosted political impersonators as part of a Presidents Day sale event.

The incident occurred the next morning at a home they had rented on Lake Lanier, Smith said.

Gold manages actors, impressionists, comics, entertainers and writers including Reggie Brown, a Barack Obama impersonator, according to the William Gold Entertainment website. Brown was one of the impersonators at the event.
Fox is known for work on shows including "The Osbournes," "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica" and "Hardcore Pawn."
A spokeswoman with Northeast Georgia Medical Center said Fox is in serious condition.

Gold's next court appearance is set for 9 a.m. March 9.
