Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested Michael Sean Fields, 44 of Bullhead City, for Aggravated Assault on an Officer, Resisting Arrest, both felonies, and three counts of misdemeanor DUI. On October 28, 2022 at 3:09 PM, deputies were dispatched to a call of a possibly intoxicated driver stuck in the sand in the 9900 block of Dike Rd. in Mohave Valley. Deputies arrived on scene and observed the involved vehicle in deep sand with the tires spinning. Deputies observed the driver, later identified as Fields, asleep at the wheel with his foot pressing down on the gas pedal. Deputies had to shake Fields several times to wake him. Deputies asked Fields to exit the vehicle and observed signs of impairment. Deputies began investigating the possible intoxication and Fields became irate and threatened the deputy multiple times. Deputies reported that during interviews, Fields would attempt to close the distance between them, ball up his fists, and threaten to “knock him out”. Deputies attempted to deescalate the situation and create space between them.

With Fields being impaired and combative, deputies eventually attempted to take him into custody. Fields resisted arrest and a struggle ensued. During the scuffle, Fields continued to threaten the deputy. The struggle lasted for several minutes, with the deputy eventually placing Fields into custody. Fields denied consent to a breath test or a blood draw and a search warrant was granted for a  blood sample. Fields was then transported to the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility in Kingman. Following the arrest, the deputy responded to a local hospital for injuries received during the struggle.
