KINGMAN – Kingman police arrested Kingman resident Christopher C. Malcolm, 53, at 5:20 p.m. Sunday after responding to a domestic disturbance at a residence in the 3400 block of Rose Wood Street.
According to KPD, Malcolm was arrested on a felony charge of disorderly conduct and misdemeanor charges of domestic violence by threats, domestic violence by assault, domestic violence by disorderly conduct with firearms and two counts of unlawful discharge of a firearm.
