STORM LAKE | Sub-freezing conditions on Friday didn’t stop two Storm Lake men from fighting shirtless outside, according to authorities.
Storm Lake police in a statement said a police officer saw two men without shirts fighting in the middle of the street in the 500 block of West Seventh Street at 10:39 p.m. on Jan. 9.
Cortez Degraffenfried, 21, of Storm Lake, was arrested and charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct and active warrants out of Illinois. Melvin Trimble, 29, of Storm Lake, was treated for an injury at the Buena Vista Regional Medical Center and later charged with disorderly conduct.
The two men were fighting over a card game, police said.
Degraffenfriend was still in Buena Vista County Jail Tuesday and is pending extradition to Illinois.
