Prosecutors have dismissed misdemeanor fighting and public intoxication charges against a son of the News-Sentinel's publisher.

Robert Frederick Weybret, now 20, was one of two people arrested July 7 after a large fight at Salas Park on South Stockton Street. Police were called there at 1:50 a.m. after getting a report of 30 to 50 people involved in the melee, and several people later arrived at the hospital with minor injuries.

    Why must everyone be so judgemental of a father trying to defend his son. After all his son is now an adult and made this decision on his own. You should't not be so quick to call a foul after all if it was your son wouldn't you want the story to be finished before it was published?

    Hey kids are kids, young men are young men. big deal a fight. We got into scaps all the time back in the 80s. Just because you are the editor, these jerks dont have the right to chastize your son. Be proud, atleast he didnt run, but stood up for himself. There is nothing wrong with scraping. But now there are many gyms that practise full contact fighting. maybe next time they could all meet at one and settle it in th ring with rules. Thats the way to go! Also thank God no one had a gun shooting people!

    Gotta respect ya Marty...I totally respect your way of putting this out there. After all everyone is looking.
    My dad has always respected you and so do I. He was the same way with me when I did stupid stuff as a child too. I learned soooo very much from this. I love my dad more than anything and I'm sure your son feels the same.

    I'm talking about the headline, Marty. When your family member was arrested, there was no connection made in the headline like there was with the Council member. Isn't the purpose of the headline to get readers to read the story? It's OK, its YOUR paper and you get to make up the rules...

    Marty- I appreciate you being upfront about your son's connections to this issue. I know this isn't the first story that was published that identified him as your son. I hope that whatever the outcome there is a lesson that was learned by your son about who you hang out with, the activities you are involved in, and being around people who have been drinking. Best of Luck.

    Dear Lodi Citizen, here's the first two graphs of the first story:

    Two 19-year-old Lodi men, including a son of the News-Sentinel's publisher, face charges related to a large fight at Salas Park last month.

    Robert Frederick Weybret and Antonio Lopez were arrested July 7 on misdemeanor charges of disturbing the peace by fighting and public intoxication. Weybret is the son of Lodi News-Sentinel publisher Martin Weybret.

    It never hurts to check facts.

    That's interesting. Mr. Weybret wasn't listed as the 'publisher's son' when he was arrested. And what does that mean that his attorney didn't IMMEDIATELY return the message-does that mean he did, but the reporter didn't like what he said? C'mon Marty, what's fair is fair-when you reported on a Council member's child being arrested, you made sure the readers knew the connection.
