Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Jonathan Alan Rutherford, 46, of Fort Mohave on Tuesday (11/7) afternoon for aggravated assault on an officer and resisting arrest, both felonies and for an outstanding warrant.
Approximately 3:30 pm, deputies contacted Rutherford in the area of Camp Mohave Road and Calle Esperanz. A record check showed Rutherford to have an undesignated warrant issued by Bullhead City Justice Court. As deputies attempted to take Rutherford into custody, he began to resist, telling deputies he wasn’t going to jail. During the incident, Rutherford ignored verbal commands and became more aggressive towards deputies. After a brief struggle, Rutherford was taken into custody. Rutherford was transported and booked into the Mohave County Jail.
