An Arkdale couple has been charged in Adams County with battery, disorderly conduct, and false imprisonment.  According to the deputy’s report, in January 2013 45-year old Pamela Marquardt and 47-year old Alan Marquardt allegedly got into a physical altercation with an employee at the Marquardt Adult Family Group Home. The incident had escalated to the point that Adam Marquardt allegedly secured the door to the victim’s room with a wooden oar and screws.  After several hours of confinement, the woman was able to bust open the door and call 9-1-1.  The Marquardts were arrested and transported to the Adams County Jail.  Alan Marquardt posted a $10,000 cash bond and Pamela Marquardt had posted a $2500 cash bond.  Their next court appearance is scheduled for June 18, 2013.
