RENO — Mayor Bart Jetton of Reno was booked and released today from the Lamar County Jail on an assault with a deadly weapon charge stemming from an incident Oct. 27.

His bond was $100,000 on the charge, levied by the Lamar County District Attorney after an investigation by the Texas Rangers. 

Reno Police and Lamar County Sheriff deputies responded to a call on Oct. 27 of a report of a family disturbance at the Jetton home. A City of Reno press release states the immediate concern of arriving law enforcers was the safety of all present. The situation was resolved that day by an agreed temporary separation of all involved, the release states.
