Police: smashed mailbox ends in multiple charges for Waldo man
Waldo — A Waldo man is facing multiple charges after allegedly smashing a mailbox and driving drunk.
Waldo County Sheriff's deputies charged Nicholas Moll, 31, with operating under the influence, criminal trespass, operating without a license and disorderly conduct Wednesday, July 23, following an incident that began at 10:56 p.m.
Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton of the Waldo County Sheriff's Office said Moll allegedly went to a residence in Waldo looking for his wife. The homeowner confronted Moll and informed him that his wife was not at the residence.
While leaving the property, Trafton said Moll allegedly smashed the homeowner's mailbox before deputies tracked him down at the end of Holmes Avenue in Waldo.
Deputy Kevin Littlefield spoke with Moll and detected a strong odor of alcohol and Moll's speech was slurred. Moll admitted to drinking that evening, but refused to take an Intoxilyzer test, Trafton said. A second deputy arrived to assist Littlefield after Moll became uncooperative.
Moll continued to be uncooperative with deputies and directed an expletive at the officers, Trafton said.
Moll was arrested on the charges and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 16.
