MASON CITY – The son of city administrator Brent Trout has pleaded not guilty to a municipal infraction for hosting a party with underage drinking and a charge of unlawful consumption of alcohol.

Tyler Trout, age 18, was charged on February 22 with a municipal infraction for social host and issued a criminal citation for unlawful consumption of alcohol. Police were dispatched for a disturbance at 10 Granite Court – a house owned by Brent Trout – after a possible underage party was reported at that address. Three juveniles were arrested at the location and a total of five adults were also cited.

      LVS – I would have to agree it will be interesting. Do you have any predictions on how the verdict will end up?

        Most likely he will beat all the charges. This is Cerro Gordo County.

        I would be willing to bet that he will get off with probation at the worst and will probably get a deferred sentence. I can’t see them letting him completely off because of the stink that will be raised. Just saying.
