Mayoral candidate charged with assault

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – One of Lansing’s five mayoral candidates is out on bond after being booked into the Lansing City jail on a felony charge Tuesday.

Danny Trevino Jr.  was in a Lansing courtroom Tuesday facing one felony count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.

He is also charged with a misdemeanor domestic violence charge and two misdemeanor malicious destruction of personal property charges.

His preliminary exam is set for July 6.

Trevino filed to run for mayor in late April.

He’s the son of Danny Trevino, the outspoken owner of multiple medical marijuana shops in Lansing.

When his son filed to run for mayor, Trevino told us he would be “running the city through him.”
