State Senator Arrested During RAGBRAI, Charged With Simple Misdemeanor
A state legislator riding on RAGBRAI has been charged with interference with official acts for refusing to move off a road. State Senator Adrian Dickey, a Republican from Packwood, said he’s absolutely innocent of the charge. According to a Sac County Deputy, there was a big party in the middle of a road in an unincorporated town about 16 miles southwest of Sac City Monday afternoon. The deputy said he approached Dickey and asked him to move — so the road could be opened to traffic — and Dickey said he wasn’t going to move and argued with the deputy. The deputy told Dickey he was risking arrest and Dickey told the deputy to arrest him. Dickey’s attorney said Dickey and his RAGBRAI team took an alternate route that led them to the road that was blocked by several hundred people. Dickey’s attorney said there was a misunderstanding between Dickey and the deputy and Dickey was trying to get through the larger group and onto the bike trail. Dickey was released from the Sac County Jail on a 300-dollar bond. A court hearing is scheduled for August 8th. Interference with official acts is a simple misdemeanor and carries a sentence of up to 30 days in jail. All charges are allegations and the people charged in this case are to be considered innocent until or unless proven guilty in a court of law.
