Judge Sets Bond at $200,000 for Kaufman County Man

 Kaufman Texas, -A Kaufman County man was arrested on March 12, 2012 for Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon, Burglary of a Habitation, and Theft of a firearm. Kaufman County deputies responded to a call at a residence in the 11000 block of Betty Lane in reference to a man with a gun. The charges stem from an alleged altercation between Petre and the homeowner that had started the previous day. The reporting party told deputies that Roy Jonathan Petre, 39, of Kaufman had entered the residence without consent and took a 45 Caliber pistol belonging to the homeowner. Petre then left the residence. When confronted by the homeowner and a friend, Petre fired a shot at the homeowner, missing him. Petre then fled the scene and was later found by deputies, trying to enter a residence on Stephanie Lane. Deputies took Petre into custody without incident, and he was transported to the Kaufman County Law Enforcement Center.
