A Northeast Iowa man faces charges after he allegedly assaulted his child at the county fair, and also injured a deputy during his arrest.


The incident happened just before midnight Thursday (July 27) at the Fayette County Fair in West Union.

A Fayette County Sheriff’s deputy spotted 40 year old Daryl Tiedt of Fredericksburg, assaulting a small boy on the fairgrounds. The officer witnessed a serious assault on the 8 year old boy, who turned out to be Tiedt’s child.

The boy was checked for any serious injuries, then returned to his mother.

Tiedt was taken into custody; during the arrest, he resisted, and the deputy suffered a minor injury.

Tiedt was taken to the Fayette County jail on charges of Child Endangerment and Interference with Official Acts Causing Injury. He was released after posting $5,000 cash bond.

The Department of Human Services was also contacted, and will be taking part in the investigation.
