A Maricopa man was arrested on aggravated domestic violence charges June 27 after an alleged violent incident took place involving a family member.

A Maricopa Police report shows Hezekiah Turner, 20, was booked on charges of disorderly conduct and criminal damage after a verbal argument with a family member allegedly turned violent.

Turner, who in the past 15 months had been charged in three other domestic violence cases, allegedly began screaming and then punching multiple holes in the walls of a family member’s home, according to the report.

He then purportedly threw multiple items across the house, the report said, causing his family member to fear for their safety.

Upon reviewing Turner’s criminal record, police decided to additionally charge him with aggravated domestic violence, his fourth DV charge since April 2016.

“Due to Hezekiah being arrested for domestic violence more than three times in 84 months he is also charged with aggravated domestic violence, which is a Class 5 felony,” the police report stated.

In Arizona, a class 5 felony concerning repetitive dangerous offenses can result in five to eight years in prison.

Turner is being held at the Pinal County Adult Detention Center in Florence on a $2,500 bond.
