Menahga man charged in Jubilee assault

A Menahga man was charged Tuesday in connection with a fight at the Nimrod Jubilee celebration.

According to Wadena County District Court documents, Adam Michael Marjama, 21, was arrested after a sheriff's deputy broke up a fight. The deputy heard a woman screaming, "Get off of him!" and found Marjama and another man punching each other in the middle of the street.

The deputy noted both men were extremely intoxicated, "swaying in place as they were sitting on the ground," court documents said.

Marjama faces two charges, fifth-degree assault and disorderly conduct. He has a previous conviction for assault in March 2008.

Bond was set at $6,000. Marjama's next court appearance was set for Sept. 28.
