According to Council Bluffs police, an officer was dispatched to Mayor Matt Walsh’s office at City Hall, 209 Pearl St., on Oct. 3 for an unknown disturbance.

As the officer walked into Walsh’s office, he heard a man — later identified as Points — yelling, “You mother (expletive) … you stole my life and my identity!”

The officer escorted Points into the hallway. After being checked for weapons, Points refused to answer the officer’s questions as to why he was upset.

Points was placed under arrest for disorderly conduct.

Walsh has said that Points is going through hard times and that he hopes the man can get help.

On Dec. 12, Points entered a plea of guilty to one count of harassment but withdrew the plea later that day.
