LARCHWOOD—A 25-year-old Sheldon man was arrested about 1:25 a.m. Wednesday, July 21, near Larchwood on a charge of public intoxication.

The arrest of Jesus Humberto Mata Jr. stemmed from a report of a male yelling and swearing in Larchwood, according to the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office.

A deputy found a group of people on the 1000 block of Rood Street who said Mata had gotten into a fight with another man and broken a window of a van; however, then did not want to file charges, according to the incident report.

They said Mata was intoxicated and walked away from the residence.

The deputy found Mata walking on Highway 9 near the intersection with Highway 182.

Mata had bloodshot, watery eyes; slurred speech and the odor of an alcoholic beverage.
