A 39-year-old Council Bluffs man went to a drug-treatment center in Manning last week to retrieve his girlfriend — whom he did not recognize — swore at the center’s staff and went outside to his car, where he honked its horn excessively and drove away, court records show.

Myron Lee Brandon faces a charge of disorderly conduct for the Feb. 4 incident at Manning Family Recovery Center, 1550 Sixth St. The crime is punishable by up to 30 days in jail.

Brandon, who is barred from going to the center, went there about 3:30 p.m. in search of his girlfriend.

The center — at Manning Regional Healthcare Center — houses up to 16 people at a time for drug treatment.

Brandon went there and yelled, “Pack your (expletive). You’re coming with me,” court records show.

The woman initially ran to see Brandon, but he “did not recognize his own girlfriend,” so she hid under a desk, a criminal complaint says.

At least one employee of the center reminded Brandon he was not allowed there, to which he replied, “I don’t (expletive) care.”

“He was told by others at the facility that there was children present, and he said, ‘I don’t give a (expletive),’ ” the complaint says.

Brandon left after about 15 minutes and drove his car to an entrance of the center, repeatedly honked his horn and drove away.

The Manning Police Department requested a warrant for his arrest on Friday.
