Shahan, 53, will be forced to surrender his passport and must wear an electronic monitoring device. He will also be required to live with his mother in her Homewood apartment.

Shahan was arrested New Year's Day at the Nashville International Airport, where he was set to board a flight to Germany. During a bond hearing Thursday, prosecutors alleged that he was moving overseas to start a new life with his boyfriend.
