SEATTLE -

Courtroom audio reveals that Washington state prosecutors asked a judge to hold future Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis on $25,000 bail after he was arrested for malicious mischief in Seattle in 2004.

Alexis was arrested after he shot out the tires of a construction worker's vehicle next door to his home in Seattle. Despite the bail request, King County District Court Judge Mariane Spearman released him from custody on two conditions: that he not possess guns, and that he have no contact with the construction worker.

In a brief exchange, Alexis told the judge he could agree to the conditions, which were in force for 72 hours from the time of his arrest.

Alexis was never charged in the Seattle shooting, and it remains unclear why.
