Police make arrest after 2-day assault

Yavapai County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 28-year-old Dewey man after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend over two days in late June.

Brian Hubbard is charged with repeatedly assaulting his 27-year-old girlfriend from June 23-24 at a home in the 1000 block of Rocky Springs Trail.

On June 24, the victim called the Sheriff's office to report the assault.

The victim told deputies that Hubbard began assaulting her on June 23 after they were arguing over some personal issues while he drank several beers.

A YCSO press release states Hubbard then shoved the victim around the home and head-butted her in the bedroom, causing her to pass out.

After the victim awoke, she began packing her property when Hubbard began knocking items from her hands and threw boxes of glass items against the wall.

Hubbard eventually fired a round from a shotgun into the air to frighten the woman before shooting out two of her car tires, the release states.

The next day, Hubbard was reportedly drinking again when he allegedly kicked the victim several times in her lower body.

He also threw books at her before passing out, giving her a chance to call for help.

Deputies booked Hubbard into the Yavapai County Detention Center in Camp Verde on charges including kidnapping per domestic violence, three counts each of felony assault and

felony criminal damage and felony endangerment.

As of Thursday, Hubbard was still in custody on a $150,000 bond.
