KINGMAN — A Kingman woman was indicted Thursday for allegedly attacking a sheriff’s deputy.

A Mohave County grand jury indicted Andrea Michelle Marcrum on two counts of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and misdemeanor assault by domestic violence, and two misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct.

Marcrum, 49, is expected to be arraigned Wednesday at the county jail, where she is being held on a $25,000 bond. Her criminal case will be heard before Superior Court Richard Weiss.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a house around 11:35 a.m. Nov. 3 in the 3100 block of McVicar Avenue where they found Marcrum yelling and throwing things, the sheriff’s office reported.

Refusing to speak to deputies outside, Marcrum allegedly grabbed an object that appeared to be a screwdriver and ran at the deputy who entered the room she was in. Marcrum allegedly hit the deputy with the object several times in the chest in a stabbing motion.

Deputies placed her face down on the mattress where she continued to try and stab deputies with the object. She then bit the deputy on the hand. She was Tased and finally restrained.

The deputy was not injured, MCSO reported.
