On 06/25/2022 at 12:03 A.M. the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to Huston Park Campground at Lost Island for a disturbance and welfare check. Upon arrival a deputy met with subjects at a campsite and as a result of an investigation Esther Poeppe (27) of Sioux City, Iowa, was placed under arrest and charged with public intoxication and interference with official acts. Esther was transported to the Palo Alto County Jail and booked in to await her initial appearance before a judge.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
