Man arrested after offending fellow bar patrons
Dickinson Police officers arrested a man shortly after midnight Wednesday morning after he became belligerent toward fellow customers at the Paragon Sports Club.
Witnesses say Douglas Malloy, 34, of Dickinson, was bothering customers at the bar when managers reported him to an officer conducting a routine stop at the scene.
Malloy began flipping people off and trying to pick fights in the parking lot. He was arrested for disorderly conduct for using offensive language and gestures.
In order to arrest someone for “offensive language and gestures, (police) have to have somebody say they were offended by it,” Capt. Dave Wilkie said. “That apparently happened.”
