A Dewey-Humboldt man was arrested Friday after driving recklessly, nearly hitting a police officer and DUI in Prescott Valley. Officers responded to a call at around noon about a reckless and dangerous driver on State Route 69 near Fain Road. Police attempted to pull over the driver, 29-year-old Travis Stanford. He fled police at high speeds and drove aggressively the wrong way on a one-way road. Officer didn’t pursue Stanford due to public safety concerns. Stanford was later located in the Prescott Ridge area. When officers again tried to stop Stanford, he made a U-turn and attempted to ram a police vehicle blocking his way, nearly hitting an officer. Shortly after, Stanford fled his car on foot and ran into a nearby revine. That’s when officers went after Stanford and arrested him without further incident. He was booked on multiple charges, including endangerment, unlawful flight from law enforcement, two counts of aggravated DUI, aggravated assault against a police officer and multiple drug charges. The case remains under investigation.
