Man wanted in Colorado, Cody JC Dutton, arrested in Arizona

GOLDEN VALLEY, Ariz. - A man wanted on a warrant in Colorado tried to run away from deputies into the desert in northwestern Arizona, but was still caught.

Mohave County Sheriff's officials say 29-year-old Cody JC Dutton was taken into custody early Sunday for resisting arrest and on a fugitive from justice warrant issued out of Colorado.

Sheriff's officials didn't immediately release details on the Colorado warrant.

However, Dutton has a history of jail escapes. He escaped the Archuleta County Jail in 2005 with two other inmates. The three escaped after they shimmied down a 25-foot air shaft with blankets.

Colorado court records show he was charged with escape in 2009 in La Plata County.

Deputies were conducting a traffic stop about 2:15 a.m. Sunday in Golden Valley. They say Dutton was a passenger in the car and gave them a false name.

When deputies tried to arrest him, they say he pushed them away and ran into the desert. They used a stun gun to stop him.

Dutton has been booked into the county jail. It was unclear Monday if Dutton has a lawyer yet or is facing extradition.
