A Camp Verde man is facing felony charges of resisting arrest, two counts of aggravated assault and a misdemeanor charge for interfering with judicial proceedings.

Deputies state that Adam Patrick called the Camp Verde Marshall's Office for assistance in a domestic situation on April 3 just before 9 p.m. According to Sgt.
