NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A Nacogdoches County constable and his deputies arrested a -year-old man Thursday after he allegedly made racial comments and pointed a gun at people who asked him to stop letting his dog go to the bathroom in their front yard.

Kenneth Wayne Stahnke, of Nacogdoches, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. He posted a $5,000 bail and was released from the jail later Thursday.

According to Pct. 4 Constable David Stone, he and his deputies were dispatched out Thursday in reference to a report of threats being made in the area of State Highway 21 and County Road 404. When the deputies talked to the complainants, they said the suspect, who was later identified as Stahnke, rode up to their property on a golf cart and allowed his dog to go to the bathroom in their yard.

When the complainants stepped out onto their front porch to ask Stahnke to stop letting his dog go to the bathroom, he allegedly “became combative” pointed a gun at them, and threatened to do them harm. Stone said Stahnke also made repeated racial remarks.

“After an investigation, deputies determined that an offense had occurred,” Stone said. “Deputies were able to locate the suspect and observed a weapon matching the description provided, within his reach on his golf cart.”

At that point, the constable’s office deputies arrested Stahnke, and he was transported to the Nacogdoches County Jail without further incident.
