Englert Theatre's executive director arrested


The executive director of the Englert Theatre was arrested Tuesday morning.

Iowa City Police were called to The Mill at 120 E. Burlington Street at around 2:30 a.m. for a report of a loud after-hours party.

Police say that when they got inside, they found people inside drinking. They say Andre Frederick Perry, 33, told them he worked at The Mill and was uncooperative. 

Police say Perry refused to show identification, had trouble with a field sobriety test and refused a preliminary breath test.

He was arrested and charged with Public Intoxication.

Perry has been the Englert's executive director since April 2010, and is a talent buyer for The Mill.
