MOHAVE COUNTY, [AZ]--Robert "LaVoy" Finicum told police they would have to shoot him. The Arizona rancher and anti-government protester died on the side of a remote Oregon road in 2016. He was shot after he ran a police roadblock, plowed into a snowbank, got out of his truck and advanced on authorities. The Mohave County Board of Supervisors this week voted to rename another remote stretch of road after Finicum, calling him a patriot who died defending his beliefs. Mohave County Supervisor Hildy Angius said she was honored to bring forward a vote to rename a two-mile section of Yellowstone Road near the community of Cane Beds and call it LaVoy Finicum Road. Residents in the area overwhelmingly supported the name change. Angius said the petition for the change was brought forward by community members, including Finicum's relatives. "They wanted it to be named to honor a native son," Angius said, adding residents living near the road were notified of the requested name change and offered an opportunity to oppose it. View More>>
