Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:
•Fleeing, Oak Street.
Police arrested a 15-year-old female Saturday night after being involved in a large altercation at the Faulkner County fair and running from police.
The police report states officers observed the groups “a large portion” of the night, and were forced to respond to situations involving the groups multiple times.
Officers say two groups of young males and females “were having issues with each other due to their combative body language and eye contacts.”
After observing members of the group running “with great speed and intent,” multiple officers responded to the northwest area of the fair grounds where officers encountered the groups.
“Due to their actions and body language, it appeared to be heading toward conflict,” one of the officers wrote in the police report.
More than two hours later, officers responded to a large fight near the ticket booth.
“Some of the boys no longer had their shirts on,” an officer wrote. “Due to my training and street experience with fight situations, such as this, I believed that to be a clear indicator that a fight had just occurred and they were splitting up due to our arrival.”
When an officer stated for the groups to leave the fair grounds, the female, later arrested, started yelling and chanting “f--- the police,” as she “motioned her hands and arms up and down as if to encourage other individuals to join in her chant,” the police report states.
Officers said in the police report they feared the girl’s action might spark another fight or riot. An officer attempted to grab the female by the arm and stated “come with me,” at which point the female turned toward the officer and exclaimed “hell no,” the police report states.
“I tried to grab onto her again, but she quickly bolted and fled from me,” the officer wrote.
Police chased the female to a large field as group members followed behind, cheering the girl, the police report states.
Police say the girl “squared off” with an officer “moving back and forth like a boxer would when faced with an opponent.”
The officer attempted to tackle the girl, but fell to the ground, which caused the girl to smile and the group members to cheer, police said.
The girl then ran from police again, before stopping to face another officer “in a fighter’s stance,” the police report states.
The officer used pepper spray to subdue the female, citing her “willingness to avoid capture,” “the presence of a steady stream of cars,” “the presence of (the minor’s) ever-growing number of supporters,” and “her unwillingness to get on the ground after being ordered to do” as his reasoning.
The female immediately went to the ground, and was taken into custody.
Another officer on scene stated he was threatened by onlookers and “felt genuinely threatened by the supporters’ comments,” the police report states.
After being checked for weapons, the girl was transported to the Faulkner County jail. The police report lists a charge of disorderly conduct in addition to fleeing.
• Residential burglary, South Donaghey Avenue.
A Conway man says his apartment, in the 300 block of South Donaghey Avenue, was burglarized of several food items and clothing Saturday night.
The 21-year-old victim said the burglary occurred while he was at work, although his mother was able to observe the two suspects in the act.
The victim’s mother told police she saw two black males inside the residence. One was carrying Hot Pockets, sodas and clothing, the victim’s mother said.
When the men saw her, they immediately ran into another apartment, where the victim has said he’s seen the men before.
The victim told police he was friends with a female resident of the apartment, but was unable to make contact with her.
The victim said he found no signs of forced entry, and believes the suspects used a hidden key.
The amount of stolen goods was valued at $30 in the police report.
• Fleeing, Harkrider Street.
Police arrested a Conway man Saturday afternoon on multiple charges, including fleeing and leaving the scene of an accident.
Officers observed a black Dodge Neon south on Harkrider that had a license plate that returned to another vehicle.
Police initiated a traffic stop near the intersection of Fourth and Harkrider streets, however, the vehicle refused to stop.
Police pursued the vehicle on Fourth Street through intersections at Factory and Ingram streets. Officers said the vehicle then turned eastbound on Sixth Street, and turned into Chapel Ridge Apartments.
The vehicle then drove over a curb and hit a parked vehicle before the driver exited the vehicle and ran, police said.
Officers pursued the suspect, but were unable to apprehend him.
The police report states through further investigation, officers were able to identify the man as Stanley Waters, 38, also known as Tank.
If apprehended, in addition to fleeing, the suspect will face charges of fictitious tags, disregard of a traffic control device, careless and prohibited driving and leaving the scene of an accident.
• DWI, Clifton Street.
Police arrested a Conway woman for driving while intoxicated and the endangerment of a minor Thursday night.
Police were notified of an intoxicated driver on Mitchell Street, heading in the direction of Clifton Street around 11:06 p.m.
Officers observed the vehicle, a white Ford Taurus station wagon, north on Clifton Street, and then observed the vehicle turn into an apartment complex in the 1300 block.
Police made contact with the driver, identified as a white female, and asked her if she had consumed any alcohol.
The woman admitted to drinking while volunteering at Brew at the Zoo in Little Rock.
Police said the woman displayed bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. The woman began to get her child, identified as a two-year-old boy, out of a car seat, and walked toward an apartment when she was stopped by officers and told she would need to be checked.
After undergoing a sobriety test, the woman was arrested for driving while intoxicated.
The child was later turned over to the woman’s boyfriend.
Police said the woman began yelling while being booked at the Faulkner County jail, and refused to sign her DWI rights form.
The woman requested an ambulance after she began to hyperventilate, and was transported to the Conway Regional Medical Center emergency room.
The woman continued to yell and curse while at the hospital and was described as a disturbance by hospital staff.
The woman was additionally charged with refusal to submit to a chemical test and disorderly conduct, in addition to driving while intoxicated and second-degree endangerment of a minor.
