A Sheldahl man was arrested by officers of the Perry Police Department shortly after 11 a.m. Saturday near the corner of 17th Street and Otley Avenue.


Leigh Richard Houghton, 53, of 307 Story St., Sheldahl, was arrested by officers of the Perry Police Department Saturday morning on a charge of driving under suspension and on a Dallas County warrant for failure to appear on an original charge of first-offense possession of marijuana.

A Sheldahl man was arrested about 11 a.m. Saturday after he came to the attention of the Perry Police Department when he was reportedly chasing a woman around a local retail store and screaming at her.

Leigh Richard Houghton, 53, of 307 Story St., Sheldahl, later left the store in a vehicle and was arrested by responding officers of the Perry Police Department on a charge of driving under suspension and on a Dallas County warrant for failure to appear on an original charge of first-offense possession of marijuana.

Houghton is held at the Dallas County Jail on a $1,000 cash or surety bond. His initial appearance is scheduled for Sunday morning before a Dallas County Magistrate.

The Dallas County arrest warrant was issued in June after Houghton failed to attend a preliminary hearing in connection with his arrest March 13 by an officer of the Perry Police Department.

*A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
