KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) -- A 36-year-old Kingman man is in trouble with the law after he allegedly insisted on entering a home with a lit cigarette though a person inside the home was using oxygen.
The Mohave County Sheriff's Office says Gary Duane Valor called law enforcement on Christmas morning to report that a person in the home threw water on him and his cigarette.
The Kingman Daily Miner reports that deputies responding to Valor's call ended up arresting him on suspicion of felony resisting arrest and of misdemeanor counts of assault and disorderly conduct.
It's not immediately known whether he has a lawyer.
