August 30, 2018

BULLHEAD CITY — A Bullhead City man has been arrested on drug and other charges after reportedly threatening a waitress.

Woodrow Stevenson Head, 32, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of burglary, criminal damage, agg-ra-vated assault, disorderly conduct, threatening and intimidating, possession of dangerous drugs for sale and possession of narcotic drugs, as well as for an outstanding post-adjudication warrant.

Employees at a restaurant in the 400 block of Long Avenue reported that Head was loitering outside in the patio area, police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said.

When a waitress started talking to him, Head reportedly threatened to “body slam” and shoot her.

When she went back inside for help, Fromelt said, Head kicked open the door to the office, ransacked the room and broke into the safe.

He then went into the kitchen area and got into a confrontation and a struggle with the cook, whom he allegedly tried to slash with a knife.

Police got into a pursuit with Head when he ran out of the restaurant, Fromelt said.

He was taken into custody at Highway 95 and Second Street. Head reportedly had a small bag of heroin in his possession and he left a bag that contained more heroin, about 14.9 grams of methamphetamine and some drug paraphernalia in the restaurant, she said.

Head was taken to the Mohave County Jail in Kingman, where he was being held without bond. No information on a court appearance was immediately available.

No one was injured during the incident, Fromelt said.
