VALPARAISO — A La Porte man whom police said was harassing people waiting to get into the Porter County Fair was arrested Thursday night on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

According to the Porter County Sheriff’s Office, at 7:13 p.m. a woman of Indian ethnicity told a deputy working security at the fair that a man had begun “to yell at her that she needed to get out of the U.S.A. and that she is in the wrong country due to her being Indian,” a statement from the Sheriff’s Office said.
