A Yucca Valley man was arrested on Aug. 11 following an altercation in which he allegedly pounded on the door of RVs in neighboring campsites, before hitting a man in the face with the hammer.
The Lake Havasu Police Department said it arrested Kevin Halcrow at 6:56 a.m. at Crazy Horse Campground. Halcrow was charged with felony disorderly conduct with a weapon, aggravated assault, and two charges of criminal damage.
Halcrow allegedly woke up residents in side-by-side campsites by banging his hammer on the door. According to the victims, Halcrow allegedly was looking for a family member of theirs who had been arrested for underage consumption the previous night. Halcrow began arguing with the campers before allegedly hitting one of the men in the face with the hammer as he approached Halcrow from behind.
Another man managed to subdue Halcrow before the situation escalated, and Halcrow eventually left the area.
According to the Lake Havasu Police Department, Halcrow told officers that he was looking for the kid because they had allegedly called Halcrow’s wife a vulgar word. Halcrow told officers that he knew what he was doing when he went to the campsite, and knew the consequences.
