JEFFERSON COUNTY, MO. (KPLR) – The mayor of Fenton was arrested for domestic assault in Jefferson County Saturday morning.

Mayor Mike Polizzi was arrested for third degree domestic assault, just after midnight at a home along Old Highway 141, near Fiedler Lane.

A Jefferson County Sheriff’s department spokesman says, the mayor was held for a 12 hour cooling off period, then released without having to postbond.

The case will be sent to the prosecuting attorney’s office next week to decide if charges will be filed.

Authorities aren’t saying who the alleged victim is.
