A 20-year-old Brownwood man and three juveniles were arrested Friday night on allegations that they assaulted another male during Brownwood High School graduation at the Brownwood Coliseum.
    Gerardo Mares was booked into the Brown County Jail on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity and assault, jail records state. The juveniles were taken to the Brown County juvenile detention center, police said.
    Mares remained jailed Tuesday in lieu of bonds totaling $10,000.
    According to a report by officer Kris Salazar:
    Salazar was working off-duty at the coliseum at the high school graduation when multiple students and parents told him several males were fighting another male at the rear of the coliseum. Salazar located the victim, who said he was walking down from the top area to the bottom to find his cousin who had just graduated. The victim alleged that Mares punched him and his friends joined in.
    The victim said he’d had a previous altercation with Mares.
    Two graduating seniors helped break up the fight, Salazar was told.
    Sgt. Stephanie Morgan and officer Fred Bastardo located the four suspects at the nearby Food Mart store.
    In an unrelated incident, law enforcement officials responded to a bomb threat at the 3M plant in Brownwood Tuesday afternoon, Brown County Sheriff Vance Hill said.
    The threat was "unsubstantiated," Hill said. He said the sheriff's office, Brownwood Police Department and fire department responded. Comment from 3M management was not immediately available.
