On May 16, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Eric John Carignan, 44, of Kingman for unlawful flight from law enforcement vehicle and possession of drug paraphernalia, both felonies. Deputies observed a motorcycle traveling 39 mph in a posted 25 mph zone and attempted to conduct a traffic stop at 12:40 p.m., but the motorcycle wouldn't stop. Deputies got closer and turned on the siren briefly, and the motorcycle operator headed toward Bank Street, where he finally turned into a driveway in the 3000 block of McVicar Avenue. Police ordered Carignan to raise his hands and as he did so, he dropped a backpack. Carignan told deputies he wasn't running away - he just wanted to get home because he didn't have a motorcycle license and didn't think his motorcycle would be towed if it were parked at his residence. A search of Carignan's backpack revealed a glass pipe with black burnt residue. Carignan was taken into custody without incident and the vehicle was towed from the scene.
