A group from Flagstaff said they were shot at while kayaking at Burro Creek in south Mohave County on Saturday, February 4. The man in the lead kayak flipped upside down in the water for protection and kayaked downstream as bullets sprayed into the creek, according to the Mohave County Sheriff’s office.
Nobody was injured by the gunfire. Sheriff’s Office spokesman Trish Carter said 66-year old Danny Button reportedly threatened three of the kayakers at gunpoint as he ordered them out of the water while claiming they were on his private property. Burton was arrested and booked into jail for a mix of unlawful imprisonment, kidnapping, endangerment and aggravated assault charges.
