Rock Rapids, Iowa — A Sioux Falls man has been sentenced after an incident at Grand Falls Casino near Larchwood early this year.
The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office says 33-year-old Nathan Olson was charged with second degree criminal mischief, a class D felony; and a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.
The charges stemmed from an incident that took place about 9 PM on January 27th, 2016, when Olson was accused of damaging a 2015 Cadillac Escalade belonging to the casino. According to court documents, the arresting deputy says that when Olson was asked to leave the premises, he became disruptive and spit on the floor of the casino. When Olson left, the deputy says Olson pushed a luggage cart into the Cadillac. The deputy reported that a few days earlier, Olson had “keyed” the side of the same vehicle.
Earlier this week, Olson was sentenced on the criminal mischief charge. His sentence includes a five-year suspended prison term, two years of probation, and a $300 statutory probation supervision fee. He also has to pay a $750 fine, 35% statutory surcharge, court costs, a $125 Law Enforcement Initiative Surcharge, court-appointed attorney fees, and jail fees. Plus Olson has to pay nearly $2000 in restitution to Grand Falls Casino and Golf Resort.
According to court records, the disorderly conduct charge was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
