Warner, however, was granted $2.5 billion bail, but had to surrender his passport, and is required to report to police twice a week.

Earlier on Wednesday, seven FIFA officials were arrested in Zurich, Switzerland, on a US warrant of federal corruption charges, including fraud, racketeering and money laundering in shady marketing and broadcasting deals over the last 20 years.

The US Department of Justice announced that 14 individuals have been indicted, including nine FIFA officials and five corporate executives, for racketeering conspiracy and corruption.
