The Atlantic Police Department reports one person was arrested, and an accident was investigated, Tuesday. Officials say 39-year old Todd M. Andersen, of Atlantic, was arrested on a Cass County warrant for Failure to Appear at a Child Support hearing. Andersen was booked into the Cass County Jail and held, pending an appearance before the magistrate.

And, no citations were issued following an accident Tuesday afternoon, in the parking lot of the Atlantic Fareway Store. Officials say a vehicle driven by Daniel Schmeling, of Villisca, was traveling west in the parking lot, and had begun to turn left to head south, when she failed to see a car driven by Kathryn Bradfield, of Lewis, traveling north in the lane Schmeling was turning in to. Authorities say Schmeling’s visibility was obstructed by glare from the sun.

The vehicles collided, causing a total of $1, 500 damage.
