On Sunday, June 4th, at 6:30 pm, Kingman Police arrested Brett James Pinnell, 23 of Kingman, on felony charges of Child Abuse and Unlawful Flight from Law Enforcement, Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Officers were responding to a shoplifting in progress at a store in the 3100 block of Stockton Hill Rd., where suspects were reportedly fleeing. A female suspect was reported to be running from the store on foot and a male suspect was reported to be leaving in a black colored Mustang. An officer observed the black Mustang, driven by Pinnell, on Stockton Hill Rd. and attempted to stop it. The Mustang fled eastbound on Beverly Ave. at speeds in excess of 75mph, almost colliding head-on with an oncoming vehicle. Pinnell was captured several minutes later walking along Airway Ave. carrying a 2-year-old boy. It was determined that the 2-year-old boy had been a passenger in the vehicle when Pinnell was fleeing from the pursuing officer. The 2-year-old was the son of Pinnell’s girlfriend, Elethea Diana Puglia, the female suspect who fled on foot. Puglia was captured at a nearby convenience store, where she began having medical issues. Puglia was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center where she subsequently left against medical advice. Pinnell, who was also found to be in possession of marijuana and the associated drug paraphernalia, in addition to a Failure to Appear warrant on other charges, was booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility. The investigation is on-going. Charges are pending against Puglia.
