Three arrested at Mills Park on Fourth in separate incidents

Three people were arrested at Mills Park on the Fourth of July, including a man who punched a mounted officer's horse in the face.

Martin James Burnham, 20, was booked into the Carson City Jail at 9:57 p.m. on suspicion of gross misdemeanor battery on a peace officer, gross misdemeanor assault on a peace officer, misdemeanor obstructing a peace officer and misdemeanor minor consuming. His bail was set at $5,642.

According to the arrest report, Burnham was asked to leave the park after reports that he was "intoxicated and fighting."

While two reserve officers on horse back "attempted to escort Burnham out of the park," he allegedly turned and "with a closed fist" and punched the horse in the face, then fled, the report states.

He was stopped by officers in the rear of 1100 Highway 50 East a short time later.

At 10:33 p.m., Joe Littlewolf Kizer, 30, was arrested on suspicion of urinating on a tree after allegedly being ordered from the park on July 2 for using the women's restroom.

And about a half hour before the fireworks show on Wednesday, officers arrested a 50-year-old woman for interfering with emergency workers trying to aid her intoxicated friend who had been reported as a "man down."

According to the arrest report, the woman kept trying to take her intoxicated friend by the hand while paramedics were trying to care for him.

When she was told to back away, she allegedly shouted vulgarities and refused to leave. When asked for her identification, she allegedly refused and again shouted profanities.

Darla Kaye Campbell was booked into the Carson City Jail on suspicion of misdemeanor disorderly conduct and interfering with police.
