At about 2:45 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon the Stanton County Sheriff’s office responded to a disturbance at a residence in Stanton that resulted in the arrest of two men on various charges.  James Kuehn, 50, of Stanton was arrested for Third Degree Assault, Disturbing the Peace, Possession of Marijuana and Drug Paraphernalia.  Jon (Eric) Karpowich, 54, of Rural Stanton was arrested for Disturbing the Peace, Aggravated DWI (Above .150% BAC.), Open Container of Alcohol Violation.  Karpowich had a blood alcohol on the scene of over four times the legal limit.   Karpowich has three prior DWI convictions, but due to the fact they occurred more than 15 years ago they cannot be used against him.   Both men were released from custody on bond after being booked at the Sheriff’s office.
