DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A 20-year-old man wearing only underwear has been arrested at building that houses the Polk County prosecutors’ office in Des Moines.

Joseph Edwards, of Waukee, was arrested early Sunday morning.

Officers suspect Edwards broke into the downtown building and damaged items on several floors. Police say shoes and blood were found inside the building.

Edwards was taken to a hospital to be treated for cuts on his ankles and feet.

He’s charged with second-degree burglary and criminal mischief.

A public phone listing for Edwards could not be found. It’s unclear whether he has an attorney. Online court records don’t list the case yet.

      No, more like an “occupier”. Do a search on ‘occupy oakland’, and check out their activities over the past two weeks, you MORON, since you brought it up.

  4. Murph says:

    Probably a lawyer for the GOP unbalanced by the number of corruption cases coming in for him to handle.At least he has one of the few jobs that the GOP has ever made and made lucretive at that! The rest of the country just has to wait for all those slave wage jobs they want us to have!

    And the inbreading in Iowa continues.

    I just wanted them to take me to the big house.
