MCSO: Wanted Arizona man resists arrest, sprays deputies with fire extinguisher

KINGMAN, AZ - A Kingman man was arrested Thursday after he resisted deputies’ attempts  to take him into custody on felony warrants.

Dauine James Hanson, 44, faces charges of aggravated assault on an officer, endangerment, arson of an occupied structure and resisting arrest.

According to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, deputies went to a residence in the 3500 block of Dove Lane to contact Hanson about outstanding warrants including two for possession of drug paraphernalia and nonpayment of child support.

Deputies spotted Hanson standing outside the residence and when they tried to talk with him he walked away.

Hanson walked to the back of the property, ignoring deputies’ commands.

MCSO says due to the amount of debris in the yard, deputies were not able to follow Hanson.

Additional deputies arrived and searched the property, finding Hanson barricaded inside a storage shed.

As deputies tried to get into the shed they saw smoke coming from under the door.

They were able to get into the shed and found Hanson holding a blow torch. MCSO says Hanson refused to drop the blow torch and deputies deployed a stun gun, striking Hanson in the chest.

Hanson reportedly pulled the stun gun probes from his chest and continued to resist deputies and he was struck with a stun gun again, which appeared to have no effect.

MCSO says during the incident Hanson grabbed a fire extinguisher and tried to put out the fire. He then reportedly discharged the extinguisher at deputies, causing eye irritation and difficulty breathing.

As deputies left the shed, Hanson tried to barricade himself back inside and deputies deployed pepperballs, striking Hanson.

After further commands from deputies, Hanson came out of the storage shed and was taken into custody without further incident.

Hanson was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center for treatment and refused to speak with deputies, according to MCSO.

After his release from the hospital, Hanson was booked into the Mohave County Jail.
