KINGMAN – Police say a man entered a northern Kingman home at about 1:20 a.m. Saturday and started fighting with the occupants.


John Earl Grizzell, 24, of Kingman, was in the front yard of a home in the 3500 block of Hearne Avenue when deputies arrived. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Anita Mortensen in an email said he refused deputies’ commands to get on the ground. A Taser was used and did not have an effect on the man, said Mortensen. Deputies were able to restrain Grizzell and place him in a patrol vehicle.

The reported victims told deputies Grizzell entered the home and addressed one of them as if she were his aunt, said Mortensen. Grizzell and the man in the home began fighting, which led outside.

Mortensen said Grizzell had broken away from the man and was about to lock the door with the woman inside. She managed to tackle him at about the same time deputies arrived.

He faces felony charges of first-degree trespassing, second- and third-degree burglary, unlawful imprisonment, robbery and resisting arrest with physical force.
