SHELDON—A 71-year-old Sheldon man was arrested about 7:45 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, on a charge of contempt of court for violation of a no contact/protective order.

The arrest of Allen Jay Baartman stemmed from him allegedly pounding on the door at the residence of a Sheldon woman that he was not to have contact with, according to the Sheldon Police Department.

Baartman made eye contact with her and when it became apparent she would not open the door, he left, driving away in a minivan, according to court documents.
