PASO ROBLES, Calif. (AP) — A Central Coast candidate for mayor lost big this week.

Paso Robles, Calif., write-in candidate Jeff Rougeot was arrested on Election Day for investigation of crimes that include felonies for making criminal threats and brandishing a firearm.

The 45-year-old car audio business owner remained in the San Luis Obispo County jail Thursday with bail at $1.1 million.

Besides the felonies, the San Luis Obispo County Tribune (http://bit.ly/WFUWlx) says Rougeot was booked for investigation of four misdemeanors for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and four violations of a court order involving domestic violence.

Rougeot doesn't have an attorney of record and a telephone call Thursday to his car stereo business rang unanswered.

Mayor Duane Picanco got 86 percent of the vote to easily defeat Rougeot and another candidate.
