Hotel disturbance ends in arrest

From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — Authorities took a man into custody Monday for alleged disorderly conduct after being called twice to disturbances at a hotel.

A call at 7:17 p.m. reporting a possible domestic disturbance at the Quality Inn, 406 E. 22nd St., became the second contact between the Huntingburg Police Department and Eric B. Irvin, 40, Jeffersonville.

An hour earlier, during a disturbance call, police had advised Irvin to keep the noise down in consideration of other guests or he could face arrest.

When arriving at the hotel the second time, officers found Irvin, exhibiting signs of intoxication, yelling into a cellphone in the parking lot. Police said Irvin was swearing and refusing to calm down.

Irvin refused testing to establish his level of intoxication but police placed him into custody on preliminary misdemeanor counts of public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

Authorities booked Irvin into the Dubois County Security Center at 10:49 p.m.

The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office assisted.
