Thunder Valley Rally a busy weekend for Cottonwood police

Cottonwood police records show several misdemeanors arrests were made during the Thunder Valley Rally event this past weekend in Old Town Cottonwood.

According to a report from Detective Sergeant Tod Moore, arrests included a 48-year-old Sedona resident for disorderly conduct and criminal damage after pulling a parked motorcycle over onto its side; a 34-year-old Cottonwood resident for disorderly conduct and an active warrant; a 22-year-old Camp Verde resident for disorderly conduct and discharging a firearm after reportedly "accidentally" firing a weapon into the hood of car while pulling it from a holster; and a 21-year-old Camp Verde man for trespassing, disorderly conduct, and resisting an officer, after he refused to leave a local bar in Old Town after repeated requests to do so and becoming aggressive toward patrons and the responding officers.

Another man was arrested during the event for assault.

During this weekend's Thunder Valley Rally, Cottonwood Police also responded, but no arrests were made, to several calls of disorderly conduct, 1 domestic violence, 2 fights, 1 criminal damage in which a patron's property in Old Town had been destroyed, and a stolen vehicle.

"It should be noted an estimated 10,000 attended TVR during the weekend,"said Moore. "The amount of police contacts/arrests are considered minimal for a group of people that size in such a confined area. All arrest were for misdemeanor infractions only."
