KINGMAN — MCSO deputies arrested a man for allegedly running from law enforcement and damaging a deputy’s vehicle.

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a call about 1:30 p.m. June 13 from the 2100 block of Devlin Avenue in reference to a wanted person.

The reporting party told deputies that the woman, identified as Breeana Marie Alston, 28, of Kingman, had a felony probation violation warrant and was seen in a vehicle at their residence.

Deputies arrived, approached the vehicle and saw a man, identified as Joshua Thomas Gow, 27, of Kingman, in the driver’s seat. According to MCSO, deputies told him to turn off the vehicle and noticed he was reaching his hands toward the floorboard. Deputies said they commanded him to show his hands and he put the vehicle in reverse, striking the passenger’s side front portion of the deputy’s vehicle.  

After the collision, Gow reportedly accelerated the car, heading west on Devlin Avenue. A pursuit ensued, during which Gow failed to stop for multiple posted stop signs and reaching excessive speeds in an attempt to flee.

Deputies said they later noticed the vehicle in Walleck Ranch Estates on Gordon Drive. According to MCSO, deputies saw the vehicle come to a stop in the 2000 block of Rex Allen Drive and saw Alston exit the vehicle and flee on foot.

Deputies pursued Alston on foot, eventually taking her into custody. The vehicle allegedly continued on, driving erratically and failing to stop at posted stop signs.

According to MCSO, deputies saw the vehicle swerve and lose control, sliding into a dirt field north of Gordon Drive near Rainbow Street. Gow reportedly fled the vehicle on foot and continued running toward nearby houses. Deputies lost sight of him.

A perimeter was established around the area and a woman arrived on scene, stating she was a resident of one of the houses. The lady said her children, who were inside the home, had called her saying their dogs were barking and acting aggressively in the backyard.

The female allowed deputies to enter the residence, and deputies allegedly saw Gow exiting a large dog house in the yard. Gow was placed in restraints and detained.

Gow was arrested for criminal damage and unlawful flight from law enforcement, both felonies. MCSO said he also had two active arrest warrants.

Alston was arrested for a felony probation violation warrant.

The damage caused to the deputy’s vehicle is estimated to cost approximately $2,500. The deputy involved was not injured during this incident.

This investigation is ongoing.
