A Waukee man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly violating a protective order in connection with a September incident in which he allegedly threatened to kill another Waukee man for shaming him with a video.
Aristarchus Kiprono Metto, 30, of 50 N.E. Sunrise Dr., Waukee, was arrested on a Dallas County warrant for violation of a no-contact order.
The Sept. 15 incident began when an officer of the Waukee Police Department responded to a report that Metto allegedly “posted messages on Metto’s Facebook page threatening to kill” someone.
The officer made contact with the victim and several parties related to the incident.
The officer made contact with Metto, who “confirmed that the Facebook posts were directed towards the victim,” according to court records.
Metto said he was upset at the victim for coming to his house and “harassing him and recording him” and then “showing the video of that incident to other family members and bragging about what happened,” according to court records.
A no-contact order was issued Sept. 29 in Dallas County District Court.
Metto allegedly violated the no-contact order Dec. 6, when he sent a text message to one of the protected parties, saying, “I hope you don’t think I hate you for anything I love you cuz but (the victim) put me to jail for two years I hope that he is okay with it life will be okay and I am sorry and I love you,” according to court records.
Metto is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $1,000 cash-only bond. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Dec. 17 in Dallas County District Court.
