Call of the Week: On Monday October 25 deputies responded to the intersection of Montgomery and 9th Street in Custer for a disturbance in progress. Upon arrival 2 males were observed arguing. When records were checked a 24 year old male was arrested for a warrant out of Pennington County. A 31 year old male was also arrested for a probation violation.
