Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:
•Second-degree terroristic threatening, Fourth Avenue. A Conway man says he was threatened by a man with a baseball bat outside of his apartment Wednesday night.
The 42-year-old victim stated the man “recklessly” pulled into the parking lot, exited his vehicle and charged him with a bat, threatening to “break his legs,” the police report states. The victim said because his arm was in a sling and had no way to defend himself, he ran.
The victim said he was “jumped” by individuals the night before, and recognized the man with the bat as being part of the group.
Officers learned the identity of the suspect and his residence, but were unable to make contact with him at his home.
•Theft of property, Front Street. A Conway restaurant says several items were taken from its property between Monday and Wednesday.
The owner of The Patio Café, located at 1156 Front St., told police that a metal sign, two chalk boards and five patio chairs were among the items stolen, which totaled $650 in the police report.
•DWI, Dave Ward Drive. Conway police arrested a man Wednesday morning for driving while intoxicated after his vehicle exited the roadway and struck a mobile home and parked vehicle.
Police responded to the accident around 3:54 a.m., and immediately noted the driver’s “strong odor of intoxicating beverages coming from his breath,” the accident report states.
The 23-year-old driver, of Conway, told police the accident occurred after he was struck from behind while on Dave Ward Drive. Police were unable to find debris on the roadway that coincided with the driver’s account.
Police say, based on evidence, it appears the vehicle was eastbound in the inside lane when the driver’s side tires made contact with the inside curb. Police say black tire marks on the curb indicated the vehicle continued to make contact with the curb for approximately 139 feet.
The vehicle then turned south in the direction of the outside curb, which it struck, police said. The impact caused the vehicle to be “airborne for 82 feet before touching down south of the roadway,” the accident report states.
Police said fresh tire marks south of the roadway indicated where the vehicle returned to the ground before continuing more than 100 feet, and hitting the mobile home and parked vehicle.
Damage as a result of the accident totaled $25,000, including $10,000 to the mobile home and $5,000 to the parked vehicle.
The accident report estimates damage done to the driver’s vehicle at $10,000. Police say MEMS responded to the scene and the driver was examined by first responders.
The Conway man was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, in addition to first-degree reckless driving, possession of drug paraphernalia and no liability insurance.
