More charges added for Kingman man shot by MCSO deputies

A Kingman man was arraigned Monday on six additional felony charges connected with his pursuit by law enforcement officers and arrest Nov.

22 in Kingman.

David James DeHerrera pleaded innocent in Mohave County Superior Court to attempted third-degree burglary, unlawful flight, two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer and two counts of criminal damage.

Two weeks ago, DeHerrera was arraigned in Superior Court on felony charges of third-degree burglary and theft of means of transportation.

He pleaded innocent to those charges.

During Monday's arraignment, Judge Steven Conn affirmed DeHerrera's $50,000 bond on the new charges, which was set in Kingman Justice Court.

He also is being held on a $10,000 bond for the previous charges.

Conn also told DeHerrera the prison sentences for the new charges should he be found guilty.

For the more serious charges of aggravated assault on a police officer, he could receive up to 21 years in prison for each count.

A Mohave County sheriff's deputy stopped DeHerrera, 25, in the 3100 block of Northfield Avenue while responding to a stolen-vehicle report.

DeHerrera has been charged with using the stolen pickup to run over the deputy and leaving the scene, driving over several fences.

A deputy fired at DeHerrera, wounding him in the neck, according to a sheriff's report.

A second deputy fired one shot at DeHerrera and missed.

Officers from the Kingman Police Department and the Arizona Department of Public Safety joined the search for DeHerrera.

They found the pickup near a residence near Fairfax and Wilshire avenues.

Sheriff's deputies arrested DeHerrera at Kingman Regional Medical Center, where he underwent surgery for the gunshot wound.

He had found a ride to the hospital, according to the sheriff's report.

Neither sheriff's deputy involved in the incident was injured.
