Car batteries used to break windows

TOPOCK -  Throwing car batteries through the windows of your ex-wife's vehicle won't get you arrested for battery, oddly enough, but it will get you jailed on felony criminal damage charges.

That's the moral of David Kyle Keatley's story.

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies were called to the home of Keatley's former wife in the 12000 block of El Mirage at about 12:20 p.m. Wednesday. It was the second time that day deputies responded to the home.

In the early morning hours, deputies on duty at the time removed Keatley for unspecified reasons, according to the Mohave County Sheriff's Office.

Keatley, 52, of Yucca Valley, Calif., allegedly returned to his former wife's home at about noon and knocked on her bedroom window.

Deputies said the woman told them she watched as Keatley backed his truck into her vehicle twice before he got out of the pickup and chucked one of two car batteries that were on the ground through her front windshield.

The second battery, according to the sheriff's office, went through her rear window.

Deputies located Keatley a short time later at a home in the 4500 block of Monarch, where he was taken into custody without incident.

Keatley faces two felony charges of criminal damage per domestic violence and two misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct per domestic violence.

Article comment by: Divorced Man

Divorce is the hardest event I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with in my life. The laws and penalties can be life debilitating. Its hard really hard but I can say this type of negative behavior is sad and it doesn't help anyone. I hope she will be ok and he gets help. Never again to threaten her so that she may live. Sacrifice is a greater love.
