Arizona tire slasher fingered

MARICOPA - Maricopa police arrested a man they believe severed his finger while slashing his neighbor’s car tires after an argument.

Kevin Johnson was arrested and identified as the owner of the finger found on his neighbor's driveway, the Casa Grande Dispatch reported Wednesday.

Francesca Wikoff told police she found the finger on April 15 after discovering her vehicle had two slashed tires. Police said a blood trail led to a nearby residence.

Authorities said Wikoff and her husband went to a neighbor's home the day before. She told police a male neighbor joined them uninvited and became drunk and aggressive. Wikoff said the neighbor pushed and threatened her and her husband before being asked to leave.

Johnson was arrested on multiple charges, including criminal damage, assault, threatening and intimidating, and disorderly conduct.
