BULLHEAD CITY—A local man was tased by police Wednesday morning after a short foot pursuit in Bullhead City. 

Manuel Richardo Duvall Jr., 25, faces charges of theft of means of transportation and two counts of resisting arrest.

Bullhead City Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said officers took a report of a stolen vehicle Tuesday in the 400 block of Malibu Drive. 

On Wednesday, said Fromelt, police were dispatched to a car accident on Pass Canyon Road and learned the vehicle involved was the victim’s stolen car.

Duvall, who was identified as the alleged driver/suspect, resisted arrest and physically struggled with the officer, causing the officer to fall, said Fromelt. 

“He continued to try to escape by running away even after a taser was deployed,” she said.

Duvall was detained following the short foot pursuit and taken to the Mohave County jail in Kingman. 

In addition to his charges above, Duvall was also arrested on a felony warrant for burglary and a misdemeanor warrant for shoplifting. 

He is being held on a $32,000 bond.
