VICTORVILLE • Felony charges against Assemblyman Steve Knight’s Victor Valley representative were dropped Thursday, two days after she was arrested following an hour-long standoff with deputies at her Hesperia home.Rebecca Tennison now faces a misdemeanor charge of failing to obey officers, San Bernardino County court records show, with her bail slashed in half to $25,000.

Tennison, 48, was originally charged with assault with a deadly weapon and being an accessory to her husband, who allegedly pointed a gun at a neighbor over a barking dog and refused to come out of his home when deputies arrived. Tennison, knowing her husband had access to weapons and that he suffers complications from prior brain trauma, refused to leave the porch when deputies ordered her to as she convinced her husband to surrender.
