PRESCOTT VALLEY - A man who police said was being disorderly toward his family Saturday morning fought with two officers as they arrested him, causing minor injuries, a Prescott Valley Police Department spokesman said.
Michael Lopez, 21, was taken into custody on charges including two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, and multiple domestic violence misdemeanor charges, Sgt. Scott Stebbins said.
Officers responding to a domestic violence call in the 2100 block of Bonita Way on the morning of Sept. 27 found Lopez, who was "exhibiting severe mood swings," and refusing family members' requests that he leave, Stebbins said. Lopez, visiting from out of state, also refused officers' orders to go.
When the officers tried to arrest him, he "actively resisted," Stebbins said, and he was finally shocked with a Taser, but not before both officers sustained minor injuries.
Police later learned that Lopez had reportedly "been out all night smoking meth, and he was having delusions," Stebbins said.
