According to a sheriff’s spokeswoman, deputies responded to a domestic violence incident at a home in the 2400 block of Thompson Avenue. Dispatchers informed deputies that Stitt, the suspect, left the scene in a vehicle. While en route, deputies saw the suspects’ vehicle traveling west on Northern Avenue and stopped it on Northern Avenue at Bank Street.
Deputies contacted Stitt, the driver, who said his girlfriend was arguing with him, that it got pretty heated and he decided it was best to leave. Stitt said his girlfriend locked him out of the house while he was putting items into his vehicle. He reportedly said he pushed his way into the house to get his wallet and phone.
Deputies asked Stitt about possibly damaging the door. He reportedly said he did break it, but it was his door and he’ll fix it.
A records check showed Stitt to have a suspended driver’s license and a search allegedly revealed a clear canister containing a white crystal substance.
Deputies proceeded to the 2400 block of Thompson Avenue and contacted the girlfriend who said Stitt damaged the door entering the house after she locked him out. Deputies found a large crack to the door frame.
Stitt was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Mohave County jail.
The vehicle was towed from the scene.
