Man arrested for attempting to arrest Process Server! you’ve been virtually SERVED!

Citizen sentenced for attempted ‘citizen’s arrest’

A man who tried to make a citizen’s arrest of his girlfriend and a process server who handed him court documents on March 31 was sentenced to two and a half years on probation Tuesday.

Charles William Tefft, 43, has a history of emotional, mental and depression issues, according to defense attorney Ron Gilleo, who told Judge Lee Jantzen that Tefft suffered from “built-up anxiety” on the day a Mohave County process server delivered court papers to his home in the 3100 block of Northfield Avenue.

The process server called Tefft ahead of time and told him he was coming over, and Tefft reportedly agreed, but when the man arrived Tefft yelled at the man and attempted to place him in handcuffs. Tefft’s girlfriend, according to Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies, ran outside and tried to pull Tefft away from the man when he threw her to the ground and cuffed her to the man’s seatbelt.
