Man arrested for disorderly conduct



Michael A. Woodruff, 36, of 180 S. Main St., West Mansfield, was charged with persistent disorderly conduct regarding an incident at his residence.

Deputies responded to his address about 3:30 p.m. in reference to a disturbance. The caller, Woodruff, said his mother was threatening to kick him out of the home because he was intoxicated.

When deputies spoke with the defendant, they observed that he was extremely intoxicated. His mother told deputies that he was being argumentative and that one of the rules in the house was that he not consume alcohol.

Deputies permitted him to make alternate arrangements to stay with a friend. However, while the defendant was gathering his belongings, he reportedly began throwing items and then became belligerent with deputies. He was placed under arrest and transported to the Logan County Jail.
