Adel man arrested for alleged death-threat harassment

Kristopher Grant Buldhaupt, 41, of Adel was arrested Wednesday on charges of third-degree harassment and violation of a no-contact order.

An Adel man was arrested on a Dallas County warrant Wednesday in connection with an incident in which he allegedly threatened to kill a Des Moines man.

Kristopher Grant Buldhaupt, 41, of 29456 Old Portland Road, Adel, was charged with third-degree harassment and violation of a no-contact order.

The incident began about 1 p.m. Friday in the 1300 block of Evans View Drive in Adel, where Buldhaupt began by allegedly “blocking in the victim’s car” and then “shouting, cursing and threatening the victim,” according to court records.

Buldhaupt allegedly said to the victim, “Open your door so I can kick your ass,” and “Roll your window down, and I’ll kill you,” and “Open your door, you woman-beating drug dealer, so I can beat your ass,” according to court records.

The victim reported to law enforcement that he felt threatened by Buldhaupt’s statements, and he requested the court to issue a no-contact order.

Buldhaupt is held in the Dallas County Jail in advance of an initial appearance in Dallas County District Court.
