Ronald Combs, 59, was arrested Monday morning.

An assistant attorney for the city of Gainesville was arrested on charges of burglary of an occupied residence, resisting officers and obstruction without violence, and a third charge of loitering, according to police reports.

Ronald Combs, 59, was taken into police custody early Monday morning, as first reported by The Alligator.

Gainesville spokesman Bob Woods said the city was in a “fact finding state,” and did not confirm that assistant city attorney Combs was arrested over the weekend, but that the city manager’s office was aware of an incident surrounding one of its employees.

Combs made his first appearance at 9 a.m. Monday. Bond was set at $15,000. Alachua Sheriff’s office officials said they expect Combs will make bond by 9 p.m. Monday.
