DOLAN SPRINGS - A man allegedly holding his 6-year-old son in a chokehold was held for deputies after another man intervened.

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies responded to a fight in progress call outside of a business located in the 16100 block of Pierce Ferry Road at about 1:10 p.m.

The fight was over by the time they arrived and witnesses were holding to the ground Perry Dorian Wickerd, 54, of Dolan Springs.

Wickerd was at the business to pick up his son from his former wife.

No details were provided to explain what precipitated the incident, but the woman told deputies Wickerd had their son in a chokehold and dragged him through the parking lot as she tried to stop him.

Two men stopped to help. One of them separated Wickerd and the boy and he and others held the man for deputies.

Wickerd faces a felony charge of aggravated assault on a minor by domestic violence. The child was physically unharmed.
