Pants hinder suspect's escape in Kingman stolen truck case

Erin Taylor
Miner Staff Reporter

Two men were arrested over the weekend after a woman whose truck was stolen Friday noticed it parked in front of a home the next day.

Joshua Lane Styer, 32, is charged with stealing the truck. He also faces charges of resisting arrest and aggravated assault on an officer after he tried to run from Mohave County Sheriff's deputies after they pulled him over in his own vehicle.

A passenger in Styer's car, Robert Peter Jacobsen Jr., 56, was also arrested for trying to toss a gun out of the view of deputies following the traffic stop.

The incident started Saturday afternoon after authorities were summoned to a home in the 3700 block of East Lum Avenue by a woman who said she'd found her stolen truck parked there.

Deputies questioned the homeowner where the truck was found and learned that the truck belonged to one of his friends. He gave the deputies a description of the friend's car, a black Cadillac with chrome wheels, which deputies saw drive by the residence as they were speaking to the homeowner.

Deputies pursued in their patrol car and stopped the Cadillac at North Tommie Drive and East Lum Avenue. Styer reportedly exited the driver's side of the car and then shoved a deputy before taking off westbound on Lum Avenue.

Mohave County Sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter said Styer ran about 25 feet before he tripped and fell into the dirt after his pants fell down around his knees. She said he continued to resist as he was taken into custody.

Jacobsen was allegedly seen exiting the passenger's side of the Cadillac and tossing something over a fence, where deputies located a gun. He was taken into custody on an outstanding warrant, along with felony possession of a weapon by prohibited person.

"I am always puzzled by folks who find sick humor in crime stories! I guess it tells more about them than they wish or even realize!"

And i find it telling that you always pop up to chime in with a holier than thou comment. From that, one might conclude you could be a ex-con, or family member friend of a criminal, or just a leftist criminal enabler with more sympathy for them than for their victims.

While this particular story was somewhat funny, it would have been much MUCH funnier if he had been running, been shot, and then had his pants fall down. You know, like a Benny Hill sketch.

But hey, if mocking criminals is insulting to your peer group........tough.

Just goes to show...Monkey see....monkey do.

Yes, low hanging pants mean you're "available" in jail..
Driving around playing loud music means you're "trolling for a same-sex" date.
It's amazing how far today's youth take stupidity, when given the opportunity.

I have heard that some cities have ordinances against this lewd act. It would be nice to see something done about this in Kingman.
I'm sure if there was an ordinance here the lefties would come out in droves claiming racism or some stupid reason it is okay for their children (and some adults) to be able to do what ever they want....after all, remember when we used to comb our hair in duck butts.

Note to everyone. You see a pair of drooping pants, Your looking at a loser.

The style has been dead for at least a couple years. So hiding behind its a fashion statement is a lame excuse.

Wear those pants to Jail and see what you get.

Personnaly everytime I see someone with pants hanging to their knees. I think heres another lazy, worthless waste of youth headed for Jail.

Sure makes catching these dirtbags easy.

The REALLY hilarious thing is that wearing your pants around the bottom of your buttocks originated in prison & it indicated that you were someones ***** (fill in the blank).

The fact that so many of these dorks walk around looking like morons is funny enough on its own, but that just makes it all the more classic! Your butt hanging out doesn't make you look cool, you look like an idiot.

Low lifes???These are Kingman's finest criminals in action! As dumb as they are stupid, and all missing their teeth, I'll bet!

Finally, an upside to dragging britches -- built-in hobbles for easier apprehension. Every coin has two sides.

I don't know which I fear most -- a gun or laughing myself to death when all their junk falls out.

I see these jerks all the time at Wally World and on the street with their pants down below their butts and wonder if they had to run how they would do it.
I saw a boy come out of one of our local High Schools and sit on the curb waiting for his ride, consequently he had his pants down below his butt. It was a hot day and the cement was hot and he really jumped up and pulled his pants up. It tickled me so much I honked and waved.
