The 36 year old body builder remains in the city jail tonight, until her mother wires 250-thousand dollars from her bank in New York to Roanoke . Her mother, an Italian diplomat herself, appeared in court today along with the Italian consul to Virginia. Neither of them would speak with us on camera. Late today they secured a letter from the Italian Embassy, pledging to assure Grilli's appearance in Miami for trial.

The government claims Grilli works as a courier, carrying cash and the club drug, "ecstasy," allegedly using the international body building competition as a cover for her travels. She was arrested at a Jan Tana competition in Lynchburg.
