Riley Allen Farrell, 23, of Des Moines was arrested Wednesday on charges of disorderly conduct-fighting or violent behavior and providing false information to law enforcement.

A Des Moines man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly causing trouble at the middle school construction site in Dallas Center and later giving his brother’s name instead of his own to law enforcement.

Riley Allen Farrell, 23, of 2021 S.E. Sixth St., Des Moines, was charged with disorderly conduct-loud or raucous noise and providing false information for citation.

The incident began about 11 a.m. Wednesday in the 1400 block of Vine Avenue in Dallas Center, where a Dallas County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to a report of someone “yelling and trying to fight with the construction workers at the school,” according to court records.

Witnesses said Farrell “came into the construction site and was yelling and making loud noises.” When the workers asked him to leave the site, Farrell allegedly “refused and started yelling at the workers” and “then went down a hallway” and “into another room,” all the time “yelling and being loud,” according to court records.

The deputy arrested Farrell and transported him to the Dallas County Jail, where he allegedly misidentified himself as his brother. Farrell’s brother told the Dallas County Sheriff’s office that “this is not the first time Riley has done this to try and get out of trouble,” according to court records.

Farrell was held in the Dallas County Jail on a $600 cash or surety bond. He has not been scheduled for an appearance in Dallas County District Court.

Farrell was convicted of assault causing bodily injury or mental illness in May 2019 in Polk County District Court. He was convicted of assault in April 2019 in Polk County District Court. He was convicted of assault on persons in certain occupations-bodily injury in 2018 in Polk County District Court. He was convicted of third-degree harassment in 2017 in Polk County District Court. He was convicted of assault causing bodily injury or mental illness in 2017 in Polk County District Court. He was convicted of assault in 2016 in Polk County District Court. He was convicted of harassment of a public official or employee in 2016 in Polk County District Court. He was convicted of interference with official acts in 2016 in Polk County District Court.
