KINGMAN - On Aug. 22, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Nathanael Islas, 32, of Las Vegas on a felony warrant issued by Yuma County Superior Court for violations of release conditions and a misdemeanor charge of driving on a suspended license.
Deputies watched a vehicle attempt to make an illegal U-turn in the Interstate 40 median near milepost 48 at about 9:50 p.m.

DUI and resisting
On Aug. 23, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Petecia Michelle Coleman, 31, of Kingman, on felony charges of aggravated assault on a peace officer and resisting arrest, and misdemeanor DUI.
Deputies watched as a vehicle reportedly swerved on Northern Avenue at a high rate of speed at about 11:30 p.m.
They stopped the driver, Coleman, on Andy Devine Avenue and Castle Rock Road. They reportedly smelled alcohol on Coleman, and said she admitted to drinking a single beer earlier.
She was taken into custody following field sobriety tests, but she allegedly resisted, and at one point scratched a deputy on his arm.
She refused to submit to a breath analysis of her blood alcohol concentration, so blood was drawn and sent to the Arizona Department of Public Safety crime lab for further analysis.
Note: According to court documents, Coleman pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors. The other charges were not formally filed.
Drugs and warrants
On Aug. 22, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Brandon Francis Adcox, 18, on felony charges of possession of narcotics and possession of marijuana, and a misdemeanor criminal damage warrant issued by Kingman Municipal Court.
Deputies stopped a vehicle just after midnight on Devlin Avenue and Marshal Drive. A record check showed Adcox, the driver, and his passengers had warrants for their arrest.
A search allegedly revealed Adcox was in possession of about 20 pills identified as narcotics and a search of the vehicle allegedly revealed a cigar box with marijuana inside and a plastic bag with residue.
The 34-year-old woman who was with Adcox was arrested on a misdemeanor failure to pay fines warrant issued by Kingman Justice Court, and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.
She reportedly told deputies the bag with residue was hers.
A history of domestic violence
On Aug. 24, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Rachel Esther Burger, 41, of Golden Valley on a felony charge of aggravated domestic violence.
Deputies responded to a home in the 7500 block of Shipp Drive at about 10:35 p.m. regarding a domestic dispute.
The caller, a 60-year-old man, told deputies that Burger, his girlfriend, "starts fights when she's intoxicated." He said she came into the bedroom after he went to sleep and called him names, yelling and keeping the lights on.
The man said he warned Burger he would call the cops, but she wouldn't let up.
Burger appeared to be intoxicated, according to deputies. A record check revealed she has a history of domestic violence charges.
