Prescott Valley police booked Tony John Taylor, 47, of Prescott Valley into the Yavapai County jail Saturday on charges including aggravated assault after several witnesses told police and evidence indicated Taylor hit a man with his SUV after an argument, said Prescott Valley Police Sgt. Brandon Bonney.

At 1:45 a.m., Prescott Valley Police officers and emergency medical personnel answered a call about a hit-and-run collision in the 8100 block of Valley Road and learned the injured man, an employee of a Prescott Valley bar, had been in a verbal altercation with Taylor and a woman inside the bar, Bonney said.

After the employee asked Taylor and the woman to leave, reports indicate that Taylor allegedly slashed the tires on the employee's vehicle.

Witnesses told police that when the employee stood in front of Taylor's red Suburban, Taylor accelerated and struck the man. The employee reportedly clung to the front of the Suburban before being thrown across the hood and onto the ground as Taylor drove away.

The man was treated at the scene by emergency personnel, then taken to Yavapai Regional Medical Center for what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries, Bonney said.

Taylor told officers who went to his home that he was not involved in the incident, but officers arrested Taylor because of multiple witness accounts and other evidence.

An officer booked Taylor into the county jail on felony charges of aggravated assault, endangerment, and leaving the scene of an injury accident, and misdemeanor charges of criminal damage, disorderly conduct, reckless driving, and DUI.
