Mason City police responded to the Mason City High School campus where the 1133rd’s homecoming celebration was taking place after receiving reports that 47-year-old Catherine Deetz of Charles City may be hostile towards her husband, Specialist Larry Deetz, and was carrying a weapon. Police say they found a 44-caliber handgun in her vehicle and was taken into custody after becoming belligerent. Deetz was charged with carrying a concealed weapon on school property and interference with official actions. Carrying a weapon on school property is a Class D felony which carries a maximum prison term of five years and a 75-hundred dollar fine.
