A former statewide political candidate arrested for shooting a man in Clay County has been released on bond.

Hiram Lewis was released from the Central Regional Jail over the weekend on a $70,000 cash or surety bond.

Lewis was arrested for wanton endangerment and malicious wounding after shooting Steven Bogart at his Clay County residence.

Lewis claims the shooting of Bogart was in self-defense, but Bogart's version of the events are much different, according to police.

Lewis' case will go before a Clay County grand jury.
