RESISTING ARREST/ AGGRAVATED ASSAULT ON AN OFFICER- LAKE HAVASU CITY

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested Paul Edge, 56 of Lake Havasu City for Aggravated Assault on an Officer, Resisting Arrest with Physical Force, both felonies, and misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct. On October 20, 2021 at 4:47 PM, deputies responded to a residence in the 3000 block of Mescalero Dr. in reference to a disturbance. The reporting party advised that his neighbor, later identified as Edge, had kicked a hole in his fence and was yelling.

Deputies arrived on scene and made contact with the reporting party and observed the damaged fence. As deputies approached Edge’s residence, they could hear yelling inside the house. Edge opened the door and was extremely agitated and confrontational with the deputy. The deputy attempted to place his hand on Edge’s chest to create distance between them, and Edge smacked his hand away and kept coming toward the deputy with his fists clenched.

This continued for several minutes with the deputy continuing to identify himself and telling Edge to calm down. Edge continued to smack the deputy’s hands away and come towards him in a confrontational manner. Edge then shoved the deputy with both hands, almost knocking the deputy to the ground. The deputy then deployed his taser, which was effective in bringing Edge to the ground.

As the deputy attempted to detain Edge, Edge began kicking at the deputy and attempting to stand up. The deputy deployed a second taser round, and the deputy was able to place the subject in restraints. Paul Edge was arrested and transported to the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility in Kingman without further incident.
