      Drunk hypnotist arrested at alcohol free prom


      Police say a hypnotist hired to provide alcohol-free entertainment at a post high school prom event in Marshalltown was arrested for public intoxication.


      The Marshalltown Police Department says 43-year-old Terry Woodward was taken into custody early Sunday morning. A message left for Woodward's attorney was not immediately returned Tuesday.


      Woodward is accused of showing up drunk before a 3 a.m. performance at the Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA. He was hired to perform for GMG High School.


      Capt. Brian Batterson tells the Marshalltown Times-Republican that people reported Woodward smelled like alcohol. He had no interaction with students before his arrest.


      The talent agency that hired Woodward says he has been fired.
