KINGMAN - Kingman Police arrested William Anthony Rubio, 29, of Kingman Friday on felony charges of aggravated assault on a police officer, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest, two felony warrants, and two misdemeanor warrants.

According to KPD spokeswoman Jennifer Sochocki, the arrest was the result of information obtained about Rubio, who was known to have several felony warrants.

Officers responded to a store in the 3800 block of North Stockton Hill Road to talk to Rubio.

He fled and was stopped by another officer. As he was being taken into custody for his warrants, Rubio allegedly resisted arrest, resulting in an injury to one officer, who received minor abrasions not requiring medical attention.

Rubio was allegedly found in possession of drug paraphernalia, and was subsequently booked into the Mohave County jail for aggravated assault to a police officer, resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, and four warrants.
