A Ferris man accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon agreed to a plea bargain in May for deferred adjudication, a fine and 30 days behind bars.
Matthew Culbertson, 26, was jailed last April after a disturbance in the 100 block of Askew Road in Ferris. JoAnn Livingston, Ellis County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, said deputies responded to a call at 7 a.m. April 13, 2012, and spoke to a female complainant who reported Culbertson had threatened her and another woman with a club.
