MAN IN PRESCOTT FAINTS DURING ARREST FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Yavapai County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a reported family fight on Woodside Drive in Prescott Saturday.
According to YCSO, the deputies heard a woman yelling inside the home that her husband would not let her out. Deputies entered the residence and the husband, Benjamin Weiner, was detained and placed in a patrol vehicle. The victim had scratches from the fight, but refused medical attention.
Weiner, however, began complaining of a multitude of injuries, including a head injury, and collapsed to the ground while being walked to the patrol car. EMS evaluated him and determined his injuries were inconsistent with his complaints and his vitals normal. Nevertheless, Deputies brought the suspect to the hospital, where he was evaluated and x-rayed and found to be in good health with no injuries other than scratches from the family fight.
Weiner was booked into the Camp Verde Jail and charged with tampering with physical evidence, assault per domestic violence, and disorderly conduct per domestic violence.
