GOLDEN VALLEY - A neck tattoo didn't fool Mohave County Sheriff's deputies who arrested a fugitive wanted in Colorado fugitive early Sunday morning.
Cody Dutton, 29, of Golden Valley reportedly told deputies his name was Stephen Crouse after the driver Dutton was riding with was pulled over shortly after 2 a.m. in the area of Colorado Road and Shipp Drive.
Dutton had a neck tattoo with the name Crouse spelled out, but a computer check showed Dutton did not match Crouse's description.
As they prepared to place Dutton in custody, he allegedly pushed away and ran into the desert. He was hit with a Taser and fell to the ground.
Deputies said Dutton moaned and was "acting very strange."
Paramedics responded and took Dutton to Kingman Regional Medical Center.
A woman who identified herself as Dutton's mother arrived and reportedly told deputies her son was wanted in Colorado.
He was taken to the Mohave County jail after KRMC released him. The driver was released at the scene.
According to news reports from March 2005, Dutton and two other men escaped from the Pagosa Springs, Colo., jail, where they were serving short sentences for relatively minor theft and criminal damage offenses.
One of the escapees was a man named Stephen Crouse. At the time, Colorado authorities believed the men were headed to Farmington, N.M., or Kingman.
