Officers responded to Bolton's residence around 6:30 p.m. after a neighbor reported the home's front door being left open for several hours. Police say the neighborhood has experienced numerous burglaries over the last few days. Officers arrived to find the door open with no one in the home answering. As officers entered to conduct a welfare and security check, a male subject, later identified as Bolton, emerged from the back of the residence. Bolton was naked, verbally aggressive and uncooperative with officers' questions to confirm ownership of the home. Bolton initially refused to identify himself. It was eventually confirmed that he lived at the residence. During this time officers observed what was believed to be marijuana and associated drug paraphernalia. Bolton was arrested after a brief struggle with the officers. Bolton was booked into the Mohave County Jail. Drugs and alcohol are believed to have been a factor.
