Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:
•DWI, Harkrider Drive.
A Conway man was arrested for driving while intoxicated after being pulled over for speeding Sunday night.
Officers initiated the traffic stop around 11:17 p.m. on Robins Street after observing a vehicle “traveling well past the posted speed limit,” the police report states. The vehicle’s speed was estimated at 55 to 60 mph in a 30 mph zone, police said.
Officers made contact with the vehicle, and driver, at the intersection of Robins and Harkrider streets, and “immediately detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle and on (the man’s) breath” when the driver opened the door, the police report states.
Police also noted the hispanic male’s shirt was on inside-out, and two beer cans were located in the cup holders. Police were unable to communicate with the man due to his limited English-speaking abilities.
“The whole time I was trying to communicate with (him), he had to lean against his car and use it for balance,” an officer wrote in the report. “Because it was obvious to me that (he) was intoxicated, I placed him into custody for DWI at this time.”
A University of Central Arkansas police officer responded to the scene to communicate with the man, at which point he admitted to drinking eight alcoholic beverages before driving his vehicle.
The man agreed to a breath test, which yielded a .23 blood alcohol content.
Following completion of the test, the man was transferred to the Faulkner County jail where he was issued a citation for speeding, no driver’s license and DWI.
•Aggravated assault, Jeanna Drive.
Police arrested a Conway man for aggravated assault after his neighbor claims the man brandished a weapon while complaining about loud music.
Officers made contact with the neighbor around 8:41 p.m. Sunday in the 1700 block of Jeanna Drive.
The neighbor said she was standing outside when the man, who the neighbor said she has had problems with before, came out of his house with a handgun, and began yelling at her about loud music.
The neighbor said the man never pointed the gun at her, but said “we can settle this right now,” according to the police report. At that point, the neighbor said she dialed 911, and the man walked away.
Police made contact with a man, and discovered he had a warrant for his arrest. The man was taken into custody and placed in a patrol car.
The man was interviewed by officers after being placed in the vehicle, at which point he stated he and the neighbor have had previous problems, and complained she and her friends were loud.
The man confirmed to officers that he did have weapons, both pistols and rifles, in his home, but would not show officers the weapons.
The man also denied having a gun in his hand during the earlier altercation with his neighbor.
The man was transferred to the Faulkner County jail and charged with aggravated assault.
•Public intoxication, South German Lane.
Two men were arrested Friday outside the Faulkner County jail for public intoxication while waiting in a parked vehicle to begin serving the weekend at the detention facility.
Officers made contact with the men, one from North Little Rock and the other from Mayflower, after receiving reports of a white male in a green pickup truck that appeared to be intoxicated and had urinated in the parking lot.
The 32-year-old Mayflower man denied urinating in the parking lot, although officers observed a “large puddle of liquid” on the ground. Police noted a “strong odor or alcohol” from the man while speaking with him.
The man said he was dropped off at the jail by his parents. Police noted the truck was not running and the vehicle’s keys were later found in the man’s pocket.
When the man was asked to exit the vehicle, police observed beer bottles in the truck, and noticed a wet spot on the back of the man’s pants.
When asked if he had urinated on himself, the man claimed the wet spot occurred when he spilt beer while sitting in the truck.
The man told police he was at the jail to serve a weekend sentence, but had not been able to enter the facility because it was currently on lockdown.
“So he decided to sit in the truck and drink beer,” the police report states.
The 23-year-old North Little Rock man, also in the vehicle, told police he was also serving a weekend sentence.
“He admitted to me that he had been drinking and wanted to have some beer before he went to jail because it helped him sleep,” an officer noted in the report.
Police noted the man had bloodshot, watery eyes and smelled of alcohol, although he man claimed to have only had “sips” of beer.
Both men were issued citations for public intoxication and escorted into the jail.
