Anthony Lightner

Livingston County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Chillicothe-area resident Monday on a civil contempt of court charge.  Anthony “Tony” Lightner, 41, is being held in the county jail on a bond of almost $50,000.  Online court records for Lightner have not been posted at this time.  He is the son of former Livingston County Chief Deputy Jim Lightner.  Last month, Jim retired from the force with 26 years of experience.  He is a well-known and well-liked member of the Livingston County community.  No one has been appointed at this time to fill Jim’s shoes.
