Officers arrived and after an investigation, arrested 26-year-old Ric Joseph Troge of Mason City on charges of interference with official acts, driving while barred and operating while under the influence. Troge was taken to the county jail and remains held there at this time on $4,000 bond. He will face a hearing on July 21.

Troge first encountered police on Saturday, October 18, 2014 at about 3:37 PM Mason City officers responded to East Park, where he was driving drunk and doing burnouts in the park.
