Liberty County District Attorney Arrested On Assault Charge

Logan Pickett will continue to serve as DA, his lawyer says.

Liberty County District Attorney Logan Pickett was arrested Saturday in downtown Houston and charged with misdemeanor assault.

Court documents accuse the 38-year old prosecutor of pushing his wife, Megan Pickett, with his hand. Media outlets report the incident left a cut on her head for which she refused medical treatment.

Pickett faces up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $4,000, if convicted.

Pickett was released on a $1,000 bond and faces arraignment on December 3. His concealed handgun license has been suspended, per a pre-trial supervision order filed Saturday.

The couple was in downtown Houston over the weekend for an event at Minute Maid Park, according to media reports.

Pickett will reportedly continue serving as district attorney in Liberty County, according to a statement released to media outlets through the couple's lawyer.
