MASON CITY – Two men were arrested Saturday after an incident in East Park that involved reckless driving.
Police were called to East Park on Saturday, October 18 at about 3:37 PM after a person reported a reckless driver operating in a dangerous fashion. Police arrived and stopped a vehicle being driven by Ric Troge, age 23, of Mason City, with a passenger, 19-year-old Brody Lee Boggess. It was alleged that Troge had done a “burnout” in the park with children nearby.
Police stopped the car and questioned the two men.
“I wasn’t being boligerant (sic) or anything and they still decided to **ck with us,” Boggess reported via social media, regarding the interaction with police. “**ck them man. At least we had a few laughs in between.”
After an investigation, police arrested Troge on charges of operating while intoxicated and reckless driving.
“Ok yeah I drank a little and drove. My mistake,” Troge reported via social media. “Not like I’m the only one. But the reckless driving charge is **cking bullshit. I did a 30 sec burnout. And if I hit a kid maybe the parents shouldn’t let their kids play in the road. So if people want to keep talking about my driving just remember I was charged for sitting in one fucking spot away from the kids!!”
Boggess was arrested for alcohol violations, according to a report.
Later, Troge alleged that jailers had ripped him off.
“So I go to jail for breaking the law but when the jailer **cks me out of $100 that’s ok. We did the math and we agreed I was suppose to get $131 back but only got $31 back. But nobody knows where that extra $100 went. Which mean I won’t get it back. An yet I’m suppose to abide and respect the law even when we get screwed for paying our dues. Doesn’t make sense.”
