Violation of no-contact order leads to arrest – March 15

On Monday, March 15, at 7:45 p.m., the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office arrested Matthew Maxwell, age 21, of Ireton, IA.

The arrest stemmed from a report of a violation of a no-contact (protection order) that occurred at a residence on 440th Street north of Ireton.

Upon further investigation, deputies determined that Maxwell had been arrested earlier that same date for assaulting a family member during a dispute. Following his release from jail on the assault charge, a no-contact order was issued prohibiting Maxwell from returning to the victim’s residence. After receiving information that Maxwell was at the prohibited residence, deputies located him there.

Maxwell was transported to the Sioux County Jail where he was charged with violating the terms of a no-contact order.
