Three men arrested in Sac County after fight in bar

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Sac County sheriff's deputies arrested three persons after responding to a disturbance call at Lanney's Corral in Lake View on Dec. 8. Around 1:51 a.m., a Sac County Deputy was on routine patrol and was driving through Lake View when Lake View Police were dispatched to Lanney's Corral Bar on a fight in progress. As the deputy pulled up, patrons pointed the deputy to the intersection of 5th and High Streets. As the deputy approached he observed two males yelling at one another. He then witnessed these two engage in a physical altercation. The deputy was assisted by bystanders in separating the two. One of the males who was later identified as Dakota Werkmeister obeyed commands given by law enforcement. The second person who was identified as Cody Dupre ran from the scene and was captured by the deputy. Both men were taken into custody and arrested for disorderly conduct and public intoxication without further incident. As these two men were being secured by law enforcement, a third person came out of the crowd and confronted law enforcement. This person was intoxicated and was arrested by deputies. He was identified as Jesse Wirtjers. All three men were transported to the Sac County Jail where they were booked. During the booking a substance believed to be marijuana was found in Dupre's pocket.

The following charges were filed:

* Dakota James Werkmeister age 21 from rural Lake View: Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct. Bond $600.

* Cody Anthony Dupre age 22 from Odebolt: Public Intoxication, Disorderly Conduct and 3rd Offense Possession of Marijuana. Bond $2,600.
