Thursday’s hearing was likely not an “arraignment” as reported by TMZ but a pre-preliminary hearing for charges arising out of a July 8, 2009 domestic abuse incident.
Press reports from earlier last week indicated Mr. Pendragon recently pleaded not guilty to assault with a deadly weapon, making terrorist threats, dislodging a firearm in an inhabited dwelling and spousal abuse. See, The Times Press Recorder article of August 4th.
Mr. Pendragon was being held “in medical facility on a mandatory hold,” following his second arrest in thirty days.
Last Sunday, Mr. Pendragon was arrested by Ventura County Sheriff’s for breaking into the family’s home and violating a restraining order entered for the protection of his wife, Charlotte Pendragon.
