An Ankeny man was arrested early Saturday after allegedly causing a drunken disturbance in a Waukee convenience store.
Bradley Max Brenizer, 38, of 1255 S.W. Twin Gates Dr., Ankeny, was charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct-fighting or violent behavior.
The incident began about 3 a.m. in the 3100 block of Grand Prairie Parkway in Waukee, where officers of the Waukee Police Department responded to a report of a fight with a weapon.
A caller reported “that a white male with his shirt off was trying to fight people with his belt,” and the male “supposedly had blood all over him,” according to court records.
The arriving officers made contact with the bare-chested Brenizer. Witnesses said Brenizer “ran in the store and jumped up on the counter and was getting in the face of other customers,” according to court records.
The officers observed that Brenizer had a “lack of balance and slurred speech,” but he “refused PBT” testing, according to court records. Brenizer was examined by Waukee EMS before transport to the Dallas County Jail.
Brenizer was held in the Dallas County Jail prior to an initial appearance in Dallas County District Court.
Brenizer was convicted of second-offense OWI in 2009 in Polk County District Court. He was convicted of third-offense OWI in 2012 in Polk County District Court. He was convicted of third-offense OWI in 2018 in Warren County District Court. He was convicted of third-offense OWI in 2018 in Polk County District Court. He was convicted of public intoxication in 2019 in Polk County District Court.
