Stanton Man Arrested for Domestic Assault and Aggravated Felony DWI

Just after 3:00 p.m. on Sunday the Stanton County Sheriff’s office was notified of a physical disturbance between a male and female at a residence in Stanton. Just prior to arriving the Sheriff’s office was advised by a witness that the male subject had fled in a vehicle and was believed to be intoxicated. The male, Coty Payne, 32 of Stanton was located with a couple minutes at the vehicle about a block away. The subsequent investigation revealed that he allegedly assaulted his female partner while children were present and then drove away from the residence while intoxicated. He was placed under arrest for Domestic Assault and Disturbing the Peace and after further testing he was found to have more than 2 1/2 times the amount of alcohol in his system to legally drive. He was further booked at the Sheriff’s office for Aggravated Third Offense DWI (Above .150% BAC.) which is a Class IV felony. Payne was jailed pending the setting of a cash bond.
