On Tuesday, January 19, 2021, at 1:38 pm, the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop in the 3800 block of 525th Avenue on a silver 2002 Cadillac Deville driven by Kurt Warn (59) of Emmetsburg. During the traffic stop, it was discovered that Warn had a barred driver’s license and was arrested for driving while barred, which is an aggravated misdemeanor. Warn was transported, without incident, to the Palo Alto County Jail and booked in to await his initial appearance before a magistrate.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
