Arnold now faces criminal charges, including: First-degree residential burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, inflicting corporal punishment on a spouse or cohabitant, criminal threats, and possession of an assault weapon.
The married councilman was arrested in December, following an incident at the home of a 28-year-old woman in Arroyo Grande. If convicted on all counts, Arnold could spend nearly ten years in jail.
