Barnes allegedly refused to cooperate and threatened an officer before he was arrested on suspicion of threatening a public official, a felony. But the Los Angeles County district attorney's office Tuesday opted to file a misdemeanor charge and would not elaborate on why it agreed to a deal on the lesser charge.
