Derrick Thomas Alger, 24, of 889 Park Place, was arrested on four charges, including trespass, intoxication and carrying a dangerous weapon, on early Thursday morning. The most serious charge was intimidation with a dangerous weapon, a class `D` felony.

If Derrick Thomas Alger walks into a gay bar sporting shorts and a cowboy hat he will be welcomed with open arms, but if he walks into a country bar in that ridiculous outfit he will walk out with a black eye and a couple of missing teeth.
