Clarkdale officers were approached by a citizen who expressed concern over the behavior of one of the coaches from the Mayer team. The coach was identified as Robert Warburton. Investigation revealed that Warburton was cussing and yelling in front of the children playing baseball and their families. Warburton additionally engaged in unwanted behavior with the umpire and was subsequently ejected from the game. After Warburton left the field, he confronted and threatened to assault a spectator while in the parking lot. Warburton left the school after this confrontation. The victim relayed to officers that Warburton appeared aggressive and intoxicated. During the investigation, officers obtained corroborating information regarding Warburton’s behavior from other parties present at the game. Warburton returned while officers were conducting the investigation. Warburton continued to be disorderly and aggressive and did not comply with police requests to curtail his actions. Officers took Warburton into custody and he was booked into the Yavapai County Jail on disorderly conduct and threats. ###
