The Los Angeles County District Attorney has decided not to seek felony charges against Cerritos Mayor Pro Tem Bruce Barrows after an alleged altercation involving resident and city council critic Jay Gray.
Mario Trujillo, Assistant District Attorney confirmed to Los Cerritos Community Newspaper on Monday afternoon that his office will not move forward on the matter after Gray filed a “failure to prosecute” procedure last Friday.
“The DA will refer the case per policy to a Office Hearing Program. The case will will be handled internally and informally in our office,” stressed Trujillo.
Gray and Barrows went head to head in a heated exchange at Monday’s Cerritos City Council Meeting during public comments. Barrows said he was “defending the honor of his wife Teresa.”
Gray said the he was a “victim of assault” and that Barrows needs to admit “the truth” to “himself” and “the community.”
Cerritos resident Chris Fuentes lashed out at Barrows at the meeting and demanded the city council to “take action against Mayor Pro Tem Barrows.”
Los Cerritos Community Newspaper will continue to update this developing situation.
