Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

•Abandoned vehicle, Hogan Lane.

A Conway man was cited for leaving the scene of an accident after officers found his vehicle in a field, south of the intersection of Hogan Lane and Reedy Road.

Officers responded to the area around 8:10 a.m. Saturday, and located a black Buick Regal near a tree line in the field. Extensive damage to the vehicle was evident, according to the accident report.

According to officers, the car appeared to be southbound on Hogan Lane when it left the roadway, traveling at a high rate of speed, entered the field and struck a tree before coming to rest near the tree line.

Officers made contact with the vehicle’s registered owner, 41, in the 1800 block of Ott Memorial Boulevard.

Police said the man answered the door, and appeared to have just gotten out of the shower. Officers observed scratches on the man’s arms and neck, along with a “deep gash” on the top of his head.

When asked if he had been in an accident, the man confirmed that around 3 a.m., one of his front tires blew, which caused his car to exit Hogan Lane and enter the field.

Police cited the man for leaving the scene of an accident, and informed him to have his vehicle towed, or the land owner would.

•Third-degree battery, Fourth Avenue.

A Conway man says he was attacked by his longtime girlfriend’s two brothers Sunday afternoon at his residence.

Officers responded around 2:11 p.m. to the man’s residence in the 600 block of Fourth Avenue. Police said the man appeared upset.

The victim, 33, told police his assailants, identified as a 27-year-old Romance man and a 22-year-old Vilonia man, were called to his residence by his girlfriend to pick her up, after the couple became involved in an argument.

The victim’s girlfriend told police said she was talking to her brothers in the driveway when her boyfriend walked outside, and told them to leave.

At this point, the victim said the two brothers forced their way into his home, and attacked him. The victim said he had been threatened by his girlfriend’s brothers in the past.

Officers obtained photos of knots on the victim’s forehead, however, the victim refused medical treatment.

•Vehicle breaking or entering, South German Lane.

A Conway man says his vehicle was entered some time Saturday afternoon, and various items were stolen.

The 20-year-old victim said the incident occurred between 1 and 6 p.m. Saturday while his vehicle was parked at his residence in the 900 block of South German Lane.

Officers made contact with the victim, around 4:11 a.m. Sunday, at the Faulkner County jail located at 500 S. German Lane, the victim’s place of employment.

The victim told police he did not notice the items were missing until he arrived at work Saturday evening.

The items stolen from the victim’s unlocked vehicle were his cell phone and sheriff’s office badge. The items were valued at a combined $480.

•Public intoxication, Dave Ward Drive.

An Atkins man was arrested Saturday morning for public intoxication and resisting arrest in the Kum & Go parking lot in the 2000 block of Dave Ward Drive.

Conway police officers made contact with the 24-year-old suspect, and two University of Central Arkansas police officers, around 12:10 a.m. When officers arrived, the man was sitting in a black Ford Mustang.

Upon making contact, officers noted the man displayed an unsteadiness, slurred speech and a strong odor of intoxicants.

The man told police he was with friends, however, officers said no one else was in the car upon their arrival.

When asked where he lived, the man was unable to give the name of the street, but did state he was from Atkins. When asked if the vehicle he was found sitting in was his, the man responded it was. However, the man told officers he owned a Chevrolet Malibu, not a Ford Mustang, which he was found in.

When informed by officers he was found in a Ford Mustang, police say the man argued with officers and continued to insist he was found in a Chevrolet Malibu.

After being placed into a patrol vehicle, officers say the man began beating his head against the inside of the vehicle and repeatedly yelled “help me.” Police say the man resisted officers when they attempted to calm him, and buckle his seat bet.

At that point, the man was pulled from the vehicle. Police say the man continued to resist, at which point, he was tased.

After receiving treatment for one area where probes penetrated his skin, police said the man refused treatment to other areas and stated he was not hurt and did not require medical attention.

The man was transported to the Faulkner County jail and cited for public intoxication and resisting arrest.
