Man upset about postage due faces disorderly conduct charge

A Grant County man was arrested Wednesday after yelling at a postal carrier and throwing a coffee mug, officials said.

A rural Bloomington postal carrier arrived at 49-year-old Darrel Mish’s home at 9044 Krogman Lane in the town of Beetown to deliver two packages, according to a release.

Mish got upset at the postal carrier when he was told there was postage due on the two packages, officials said. Mish yelled and swore at the postal carrier, then threw a coffee mug and cellphone at a vehicle.

According to the release, Mish paid the postage due on one of the packages, but not on the second package.

Mish then punched the second package, causing damage to the package and the item inside, officials said. He then opened the back door of the postal carrier’s vehicle and threw the package inside.

Mish was arrested on a tentative disorderly conduct charge.
