A 40-year-old Glidden man was arrested for public intoxication at Swan Lake State Park on Saturday after he “simulated that he (was) shooting at my patrol car,” a deputy Carroll County sheriff wrote in a criminal complaint.

The deputy was on patrol near the park’s east shelter house about 9 p.m. when he drove by Darwin Jay Robinson who allegedly raised his left hand and pretended it was a weapon, court records show.

“I got out of my patrol car and spoke with (Robinson), in which he denied making any such gesture,” Deputy Jacob Hannasch wrote.

Robinson smelled like alcohol and slurred as he spoke. He declined a breath test to determine his blood-alcohol concentration, Hannasch wrote.

The public intoxication charge is punishable by up to 30 days in jail.

Robinson has been charged with about 30 crimes in Carroll County since 2010, according to court records. He has been convicted of domestic abuse assault, theft, OWI, disorderly conduct and public intoxication, among others.
