KINGMAN - A Peach Springs man suspected of crashing a stolen car while drunk was arrested Monday.

Police say 29-year-old Cleveland Elliot Fielding was traveling westbound on East Andy Devine Avenue around 4:10 p.m. when he ran a red light at the intersection of Stockton Hill Road.

The silver, 2006 Kia Spectra being driven by Fielding then struck a Honda Pilot, which was being driven by a 32-year-old man.

Police say the Kia Spectra had been reported stolen to the Bureau of Indian Affairs earlier that day.

Kingman Police Capt. Rusty Cooper said officers smelled an odor of alcohol on Fielding when they arrived on the scene.

He was also reportedly combative with medical personnel that tried to treat him.

Cooper said Fielding's blood alcohol level was around three times over the legal limit.

The 32-year-old man suffered minor injuries but was not transported to the hospital.

Fielding reportedly suffered injuries to his head and was treated at a local hospital before he was released and booked into the Mohave County Jail.

Fielding faces charges of driving under the influence, criminal damage and possession of a stolen car.
