Bruce Pettyjohn was originally charged with assault with a weapon in an altercation on December 12th between him and Craig and Randall Reed. Those charges have since been dismissed and Craig and Randall Reed have been charged with assault with injury and forth degree theft. The incident took place at 806 Virginia Street on December 12th. The Marion County Sheriff’s office responded to a call of an assault at 806 Virginia Street. An investigation showed that Randall Reed struck Pettyjohn with his fist on the upper forehead and Craig Reed assaulted Pettyjohn by grabbing him by the hair and attempting to drag him out of a door. They then stole an antlered deer head from the rear of Pettyjohn’s vehicle when he left. Both Craig and Randall Reed have a pretrial conference set for February 2nd at 9:30am.
