Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Wayne Robert Archuleta Jr., 25, of Riverside, CA, Sunday (2/14) evening for possession of stolen property, disorderly conduct with a weapon per domestic violence and aggravated DUI – suspended driver’s license, felonies. Approximately 9:38 p.m., deputies responded to a domestic violence report at a residence in the 4100 block of Wagon Wheel Drive. Upon arrival, deputies contacted the reporting party. The RP said that Archuleta, her grandson, had been arguing with his girlfriend and he put a handgun to his head, saying if he didn’t get his car keys, he was going to shoot himself. The RP said that Archuleta left in his black Toyota Celica and then he returned. Investigations determined that Archuleta was drinking alcohol and got into an argument with his girlfriend. During the argument, Archuleta pulled out a handgun, and pointed it at the back of his head, while facing his girlfriend. Archuleta then left the house, and went to his car, where he retrieved a shotgun. Archuleta put the shotgun on the roof of his car, then continued arguing with his girlfriend. Archuleta then got into his car, and sped off, causing the gun to fall off of the roof and onto the road. A Desert Hills Fire Fighter happened to be in the area, and came across the gun. Archuleta proceeded to drive at a high rate of speed on E. Barker Drive, where he lost control and rolled his car on a curve. Archuleta only suffered minor abrasions. During the investigation, deputies smelled an odor of alcohol on Archuleta. During conversations with Archuleta, he admitted to drinking three to four beers. Archuleta was taken into custody without incident. A records check showed Archuleta to have a suspended driver’s license. A computer check showed the shotgun that fell off of Archuleta’s vehicle was listed as stolen during a burglary out of Texas. A blood sample was taken from Archuleta to be submitted to the DPS Crime Lab for further analysis. He was transported and booked into the Mohave County Jail.
