MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) — Police say a hypnotist hired to provide alcohol-free entertainment at a post high school prom event in Marshalltown was arrested for public intoxication.
The Marshalltown Police Department says 43-year-old Terry Woodward was taken into custody early Sunday morning. A message left for Woodward's attorney was not immediately returned Tuesday.
Woodward is accused of showing up drunk before a 3 a.m. performance at the Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA. He was hired to perform for GMG High School.
Capt. Brian Batterson said people reported Woodward smelled like alcohol. He had no interaction with students before his arrest.
The talent agency that hired Woodward says he has been fired.
