An over-the-road truck driver who made an overnight stop in Antigo this weekend earned a free trip to jail early Saturday.

His arrest, sparked by a commotion at a north side retail store, was one of several brought on by the use of alcohol or other intoxicants.

The 51-year-old California man was taken into custody on a charge of disorderly conduct after Antigo police received a 2:48 a.m. call that an intoxicated individual had potentially done damage at the local Walmart store.

According to staff, his anger was sparked when told the store was closed. Yelling obscenities, he also reportedly knocked over several items and ran his cart into the door before leaving the business on foot. He was later found sleeping by the door of another business.

Officials said he showed signs of impairment and a preliminary breath test indicated that he was well above the legal limit for intoxication.

The man advised police that he had visited a local tavern earlier that night while waiting to retrieve a load of potatoes the next morning.

In an unrelated case, police visited a local business Saturday on the report of potential drug-related problems involving an employee and his son. Suspicion was sparked when a syringe in a restroom at the location. Similar items were found within living quarters on the property.

According to reports, the man admitted that he and his adult son had “shot up” prescription medication the night prior. Officials said residue left on the needle tested positive for methamphetamine.

A 1:38 a.m. call triggered police response to a Center Street apartment on the report of an argument between a young couple involving a friend who had been invited to the property. Police said two males, ages 19 and 17, were ticketed for underage drinking.

Another Antigo man was cited early today for disorderly conduct for his antics in the lot of a downtown tavern. Police said he had bragged to a friend that he had been a pitcher for a baseball team and to show off his talents, he threw several empty beer bottles in the lot. Authorities said he agreed to clean up the mess.

Police also checked a couple of domestic-related problems as well as making multiple traffic stops. In one of them, a passenger was arrested on an unspecified felony warrant issued by the Department of Corrections.

Damage to a vacuum stand and a vehicle clearance bar at a car wash at Wagner Shell was also checked. Officials said a motorist suspected of causing the damage will be questioned.

The Langlade County Sheriff’s Department also made a number of weekend arrests. Two were for driving while under the influence of an intoxicant.

In the first, a 22-year-old Summit Lake woman was taken into custody after her vehicle was stopped for speeding at about 1:30 a.m. on Highway 45. Officials said two small bags of marijuana and a pipe were found in the car, triggering additional charges.

At 1:50 a.m. Sunday, a sheriff’s deputy made a stop for speeding on Highway 45 in the town of Elcho.

The driver, a 38-year-old Rhinelander man, showed signs of impairment and admitted to ingesting Vicodin prior to the stop, sparking his arrest. Officials said he was also in possession of synthetic marijuana.

A DePere man is being referred to the district attorney’s office on counts of disorderly conduct and causing criminal damage to property for a weekend incident at the Wild Wolf Inn in the town of Wolf River.

Officials said while intoxicated, the 40-year-old man became frustrated while having trouble entering his room, causing him to break a window. Authorities said he agreed to pay for the damage.

On Sunday night, deputies visited a town of Norwood home and arrested a 48-year-old woman on a charge of disorderly conduct. Authorities said she had been upset about a family issue and had tossed items, breaking several of them, throughout the house. Officials said she was intoxicated.

Authorities are also investigating an alleged fight at an Elcho area location said to have occurred earlier in the week. There were claims that someone had been struck with a baseball bat.
