Cottonwood police have taken a man into custody after several strange reports of him damaging property.

Police responded to a disorderly call near State Route 89A and Cove Parkway Wednesday evening after getting calls of a man punching signs and throwing rocks at cars.

Reports also show numerous calls from witnesses saying the man “tore apart a concrete pillar” and another saying he “started stabbing plastic signs” at Dennys.

After officers arrived, they located the subject “hitting a railing and stabbing the air.” Police say after approaching the man he ran away and began throwing large rocks over fences.

A Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputy assisted police in making the arrest, saying the man was extremely disorderly, talking nonsense, and even attempted to bite an officer.

Before officers were able to obtain his name he repeatedly told them his name was “DBB”.

Police have now identified the man as 45-year-old Lonnie Hogan from Laveen.

Hogan has been booked into jail on numerous charges.
