A traffic stop about 9:30 p.m. Saturday in the 1700 block of Evelyn Street in Perry resulted in the arrest of Ousmane Camara, 26, of 2120 11th St., #208, Emmetsburg, on charges of first-offense OWI and interference with official acts.
In the course of the incident, bystanders registered their complaints about the intervention by officers of the Perry Police Department.
Camara, who at first refused to exit the GMC passenger van, was taken into custody at the scene. A passenger in the vehicle was detained and later released at the scene following a brief police investigation.
The vehicle was impounded.
One of the bystanders, a woman claiming to be the passenger’s sister, briefly interfered with the investigation but calmed down after receiving a verbal warning from one of the Perry Police Department officers.
Other bystanders also expressed concern. One bystander identified the passenger in the vehicle as a former Perry resident who now lives in Cedar Rapids.
