Trucker charged with attempted murder of fellow driver at Arizona truck stop


Police say that a truck driver is charged with attempted murder following an argument that escalated at an Arizona truck stop.

Georgia-based truck driver Quan Stephens Arline, 55, has been arrested on felony Attempted Second Degree Murder, according to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO).

Police say that the charge was issued after a February 4, 2024, incident that took place at a truck stop off Highway 95 in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

MCSO responded to the truck stop for a call about two truck drivers involved in a verbal dispute “when the suspect, later identified as Arline, removed a knife from his pocket and cut the neck-area of the victim.”

Deputies were advised that Arline left the truck stop after the incident.

When MCSO arrived on scene, they found the victim truck driver awake and alert but suffering from injuries consistent with the reported incident. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

After reviewing video and collecting statements from witnesses, MCSO called Arline. He said that he was already in another state and “would not be returning.”

An arrest warrant was issued.

On February 16, Arline reported to a police station in Lake Havasu City to give his account of the truck stop altercation.

At the end of this account, Arline was arrested and booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility in Kingman.

Havasu News reports that Arline is held on a $1 million bond.

The investigation is ongoing.
