Hoisington man arrested for aggravated assault

The Barton County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 39-year-old Hoisington man after responding to a report of shots fired Sunday afternoon near Hoisington.

According to BCSO Lt. Steve Billinger, shortly after 2 p.m. BCSO deputies responded to the 300 block of NW 110 Road near Hoisington to investigate the report of shots being fired. Upon arrival, deputies interviewed the reporting party and, in the investigation, determined Daniel Lee Mead, 39, a Hoisington resident, made threats, brandished a firearm, and fired the weapon at least twice. There were no injuries reported in the incident. 

Mead was later located by the Hoisington Police Department and BCSO deputies arrested him on charges of aggravated assault, criminal discharge of a firearm, and criminal threat. Mead was transported to the Barton County Detention Center where he was booked and released after posting a $20,000 surety bond.
