Mayoral Candidate Arrested On Election Day

PASO ROBLES, Calif. (November 8, 2012)--Paso Robles, Calif., write-in mayoral candidate Jeff Rougeot, 45, was arrested on Election Day for investigation of crimes including felonies for making criminal threats and brandishing a firearm.

The car audio business owner remained in the San Luis Obispo County jail Thursday in lieu of $1.1 million bond.

Besides the felonies, the San Luis Obispo County Tribune reported that Rougeot was booked for investigation of four misdemeanors for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and four violations of a court order involving domestic violence.

And to top things off, incumbent Mayor Duane Picanco got 86 percent of the vote to defeat Rougeot and another candidate easily.
