NO CHARGES IN LEONARD ASSAULT

24 Feb

MORE ON THIS ON TOMORROW’S LFN

From the AJ:

A Lubbock County grand jury did not indict three men accused of assaulting Lubbock city councilman John Leonard on Christmas Eve.

Leonard was treated for facial fractures at University Medical Center after the beating at the Dakota Arms Apartments in the 6700 block of 82nd Street.

Leonard told police he was accosted after Harris told the people in the apartment above them to turn down their loud music.

The men followed Harris downstairs, where an argument ensued and turned physical, according to Leonard.

The same grand jury declined to indict the men earlier this month. Leonard was allowed to testify on the case Tuesday after a typo in a letter notifying him that a grand jury would hear his case gave an incorrect date for the hearing.
