SHELDON—A 49-year-old Sheldon man was arrested Wednesday, Sept. 18, on a charge of public intoxication in Sheldon.

The arrest of Lawrence Charles Ruotolo stemmed from him being found sitting in the street, according to the Sheldon Police Department.

He “had watery eyes, was very unsteady on his feet, and mumbled and slurred while speaking,” according to court documents.

Ruotolo pleaded guilty the next day in O’Brien County District Court in Primghar and was fined $147.75.
