BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. — An Arizona taxi cab driver is recovering after a
customer slit his throat.
Bullhead City police say they arrested 18-year-old Cody Stedman Watts on
Monday. Watts was booked into the Mohave County jail on attempted homicide and
aggravated assault charges.
Police say the cab driver picked up a man from the Riverside Boat Docks on Nov.
21. The man told the cab driver his name was “Lucifer” and slit his throat.
The driver fought back and took the knife from the man, who then pulled out
another knife. The man eventually fled on foot.
Police found a backpack and bloody clothing nearby. Watts’ driver’s license was
in the pack.
Watts was found later at a friend’s apartment. He had suffered some cuts from
the knife fight.
The driver has since been released from the hospital.
