KTHV reports on the arrest last night of Game and Fish Commissioner Richard T. Watkins for being drunk and disorderly, and the account adds some detail this morning's item in the Democrat-Gazette, including the photo above, which indicates he was in camo. (It's still duck season, so no violation story there.) Apparently, police were called after Watkins banged on the windows of a home and a nearby business.

The sheriff's office said Watkins was released at 7:54 p.m. last night.
