"Legendary Comedy Stage Hypnotist" Terry Stokes Arrested At Post High School Prom Event

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) — Police say a hypnotist hired to provide alcohol-free entertainment at a post high school prom event in Marshalltown was arrested for public intoxication.

The Marshalltown Police Department says 43-year-old Terry Woodward was taken into custody early Sunday. A message left for Woodward's attorney was not immediately returned Tuesday.

Woodward is accused of showing up drunk before a 3 a.m. after prom performance at the Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA. He was hired to perform for GMG High School.

Capt. Brian Batterson said people reported Woodward smelled like alcohol. He had no interaction with students before his arrest.

Woodward, whose stage name is Terry Stokes Jr., was hired through Entertainment Group, a talent agency based in Des Moines. The talent agency says he has been fired.
