PRESCOTT, AZ - Northern Arizona authorities say a man has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a Yavapai County Sheriff's deputy in Black Canyon City.
Sheriff's officials say 64-year-old Charles D. Blazek is being held on $20,000 bond at the Camp Verde Detention Center.
He's accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, trespass, disorderly conduct and use or threat of physical force against a law enforcement officer.
Authorities say a deputy met with Blazek at his Black Canyon City on Dec. 23 about a trespassing complaint.
Blazek allegedly told the deputy he wouldn't accept a citation nor allow an arrest and would hurt anyone who tried to arrest him.
The deputy says Blazek grabbed two hammers and made verbal threats before being arrested.
