A Northeast Iowa man, whose drivers license was suspended for not paying child support, has been arrested for driving a tractor to his court hearing.


Shortly after 11am Wednesday (June 26), the Fayette County Sheriff took 54 year old Jeffery Johanningmeier of Wadena into custody.

Johanningmeier had driven an 8100 John Deere tractor from the Wadena area, to the Fayette County courthouse in West Union, to attend a court hearing.

Johanningmeier was charged with Driving While his License is Suspended. He was held until his initial court appearance.
