LIBERTY, Texas — Liberty County District Attorney Logan Pickett was arrested Saturday morning at a Houston hotel following a reported family violence incident.
Logan's wife, Megan Pickett, walked into the Westin Hotel's lobby seeking a valet to retrieve her car early Saturday morning when a clerk observed bleeding from her head, according to a police report. When asked the blood, Megan told the clerk her husband pushed her during an argument in their hotel room and she hit her head.
Megan Pickett was treated at the scene by EMS who noted she would likely require three stitches. Megan further refused to discuss the incident with police and refused further medical attention, according to police.
Meanwhile, Logan Pickett was arrested and charged with assault of a family member, a class A misdemeanor. He was released from the Harris County Jail on a $1,000 pre-trial release bond.
Logan Pickett, 38, who has no prior criminal history, was sworn in as the Liberty County District Attorney on January 1, 2013. His current term ends on December 31, 2020.
The couple was reportedly attending a golf event at Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston.
In a statement released by the Pickett's attorney, on Sunday, Logan Pickett states he will continue to serve as district attorney for Liberty County.
“Megan and Logan want to thank everyone for all of the prayers and heartfelt support. They will not make any further comment regarding the matter pending in Harris County.

They trust the process will afford them the same dignity, respect and equality as others who encounter our judicial process.
