BEATRICE – A man who did damage with his vehicle to Hidden Acres Golf Course and nearby private property, will serve a total of two years, probation.

Dylan Rose was sentenced in Gage County District Court Wednesday…having been also sentenced in Webster County to a probation sentence for drunk driving.

Gage County District Judge Rick Schreiner sentenced Rose for two counts of criminal mischief and leaving the scene of an accident.  Defense Attorney Chuck Bentjen said Rose, who is an alcoholic, is sorry about what he did and is ready to accept responsibility.

The judge ordered Rose to pay restitution totaling $4,427 to Hidden Acres Golf Course, and property owner Wayne Schulz.  

Rose told the judge he could pay the amount immediately.  Rose was also fined $100.

Judge Schreiner urged Rose to continue with Alcoholics Anonymous sessions and follow the terms of his probation sentence.

Last February 16th, sheriff’s deputies were sent to a report of a vehicle in a ditch off Lilac Road, near Southwest 61st.   They located Rose and another male at the scene, near a red Dodge pickup.  Investigators discovered damage to a fence along West Lilac.  Rose was arrested for hitting about 500 feet of fence and causing $2,500 damage.

The following day, an official with Hidden Acres Golf Course southwest of Beatrice,  reported damage to a green on hole number one, at the golf course.   At the time, that damage was estimated at $6,400.
