SWAT team arrests Prescott Valley man after standoff
The Daily Courier

PRESCOTT VALLEY - A man who called police to say he wanted to hurt himself was arrested by SWAT officers on misdemeanor charges Wednesday night, a police spokesman said.

Shortly after 5:30 p.m., police responded to the 3000 block of Corrine Drive. The first officers at the scene found the 62-year-old man would not come out of his house, PVPD Sgt. Brandon Bonney said, but he had told dispatchers he had a knife and had been drinking and taking prescription pills.

The man had been involved in a domestic dispute with his 54-year-old girlfriend and threatened to kill her and himself, Bonney said. He had also assaulted her and burned a U.S. flag, Bonney said.

Residents in nearby homes were evacuated for their own safety, he said.

When he refused to surrender, officers called the SWAT team, which took him into custody at about 7:50 p.m.

The man was charged with assault per domestic violence, threats per domestic violence, criminal damage per domestic violence, and one count of disorderly conduct per domestic violence and booked into the Camp Verde jail.

So I'm guessing you didn't read the part where he was threatening to kill himself and his girlfriend and that he already had assaulted her. Officers weren't just there because he burned a flag and owned a knife. Also, last I checked airsoft guns generally aren't lethal. Maybe you should save the rest of us from your ignorant posts from now on.

I live a few housed down form there. To me it looked like every cop in PV was there over a knife?? Last I heard you can burn a flag if you chose(not that I would) not sure. Few nights before a man came at my teen son with an airsoft gun and cops did nothing. Just sayin
