LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Stanton County deputies arrested a man in northeast Norfolk after a disturbance at a home.

Authorities were called to a home in Woodland Park around 10 a.m. Tuesday, according to the Stanton County Sheriff’s Office.

The caller said their family member, 41-year-old Kyle Kirstine, was behaving violently and irrationally toward others at the home.

Deputies visited the home, and they say Kirstine pulled a glass pipe from his pocket and tossed it into an adjacent room.

The pipe was found, and a field test showed it was positive for methamphetamine, deputies say.

Kirstine was physically restrained and arrested after refusing to obey commands from deputies.

He is accused of disturbing the peace, possession of methamphetamine, tampering with evidence and obstructing a police officer.
