Domestic violence, kidnapping
Mohave County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Joshua Leonard Husted, 40 of Fort Mohave, for threatening/ intimidating, unlawful imprisonment, kidnapping, all per domestic violence, and aggravated assault on an officer, all felonies.
Around noon Saturday, Feb. 10, deputies responded to a residence in the 7800 block of Whitewing Drive in reference to a disturbance.
The reporting party advised that Husted, who has a history of domestic violence at this address and active warrants, was observed forcing entry into a neighbor’s house.
Deputies responded to the residence and attempted to make contact by knocking on the door, with no answer. Deputies attempted to park down the street with a visual of the residence, but never saw Husted leave.
Deputies received a call a few hours later advising Husted had left the property and deputies responded to make contact with the victim. The victim advised deputies she had been in the front yard of the property when she observed Husted across the street and he began yelling at her.
The victim advised she went inside the residence and shut the door. Husted allegedly began pounding on the door demanding to be let in or he would “burn the house down.”
The victim advised she and Husted were in the residence when deputies arrived on scene and alleged that Husted threatened to assault her if she moved or said anything.
Deputies offered to transport the victim to a nearby shelter, which was denied. Deputies cleared the residence.
At approximately 5 p.m., the same reporting party called back to advise deputies that Husted was at the residence again and the reporting party could hear yelling.
Deputies responded to the residence with the assistance of Fort Mohave Tribal Police, and a team forced entry into the residence. Upon entry, the victim was located unharmed in the living room.
Deputies continued down the hall and came to a closed door. Deputies attempted to open it, but Husted pushed back against the door to close it.
Verbal commands were given for Husted to exit the room. Deputies attempted to open the door again, and when Husted shoved back against the door one of the deputy’s legs were injured.
The door was finally forced open and deputies saw Husted standing in an aggressive manner. Deputies deployed their Taser and Husted was taken into custody.
Husted was arrested and booked into Mohave County Adult Detention Facility without further incident.
Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested Ashley Carlill, 31 of Kingman, for dangerous drug possession, drug paraphernalia possession, both felonies, and an active arrest warrant.
At approximately 12:15 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, deputies observed a grey vehicle traveling west on Lipan Boulevard and observed the vehicle leave its designated lane and driving onto the shoulder of the road.
A traffic stop was conducted and deputies made contact with the driver and all passengers, one of which was identified as Carlill.

The driver of the vehicle was given a citation for the traffic offense and released from the scene. Ashley Carlill was arrested and booked into Mohave County Adult Detention Facility without incident.
