Man accused of throwing cinder blocks at Arizona deputies
Sep. 21, 2017
FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) — A San Manuel man has been indicted for throwing cinder blocks at Pinal County Sheriff's deputies.
Authorities say 43-year-old Luis Arciniega is facing eight counts of aggravated assault of a peace officer.
Deputies went to Arciniega's home on Sept. 10 to question him about an alleged assault involving a screwdriver.
The Casa Grande Dispatch reports that Arciniega refused to answer the door and allegedly began hitting one of the home's walls with a sledgehammer.
According to court records, Arciniega escaped the home through a water heater door and climbed onto the roof where he threw a cinder block to where deputies were standing.
They weren't injured and eventually took Arciniega into custody.
Arciniega remains in the county jail. It was unclear Thursday if he has a lawyer yet.
