A Kingman man who allegedly broke into a home and sat at the kitchen table until Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrived last January has been charged with aggravated assault on a detention officer.
Rodney Clark Riddle, 55, allegedly threw a bottle of chemical cleaner at the officer and punched him on the side of the head Friday at the Mohave County jail.
Riddle and another inmate were arguing when Riddle allegedly turned his anger on the officer.
Riddle has been in the jail since January, after deputies responded to a home in the 3300 block of Jagerson Avenue. The callers told deputies Riddle kicked in the front door of their friends' home.
Riddle calmly sat at the kitchen table when they arrived. He was charged in that case with first-degree criminal trespassing and possession of drug paraphernalia.
On May 8, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Mark Edward Lee, 50, of Kingman on a felony charge of possession of drug paraphernalia and a misdemeanor contempt of court warrant issued by Kingman Justice Court.
Deputies contacted Lee regarding his warrant in the front of a home in the 3600 block of Canary Lane at about 5 p.m.
He was taken into custody without incident and a search allegedly revealed a pipe with marijuana residue.
On May 8, Kingman Police officers arrested Timothy Wayne Haffener, 40, and 24-year-old Jeremy Raymond Peppers, both of Kingman. Haffener faces felony charges of possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. Peppers was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Officers stopped a vehicle Peppers was driving in the 500 block of Simon Avenue at about 11:45 p.m. Peppers had warrants and was taken into custody. A search allegedly revealed he possessed marijuana and paraphernalia. A search of Haffener allegedly revealed he possessed methamphetamine and paraphernalia.

Also arrested was a 21-year-old man on misdemeanor failure to appear and failure to pay fines warrants issued by Kingman Justice Court and a misdemeanor probation violation warrant issued by Kingman Municipal Court.
Deputies responded to a home in the 3200 block of Suffock Avenue regarding the warrants for Maday and the man at about 2:30 p.m.
The homeowner told deputies the pair was inside the home and gave them consent to search the home. They were found hiding under a bed and were taken into custody without incident.
Promoting prison contraband
On May 6, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies filed additional charges against Jeremy Jason Alan Burt, 31, of Kingman of two counts of promoting prison contraband, possession of dangerous drugs, and possession of marijuana.
The drugs were allegedly discovered while Burt was being booked on drug charges. A detention officer allegedly found the items and a field test reportedly revealed the white crystal substance was methamphetamine.
