Conway man arrested for public intoxication during nighttime bike ride

A Conway man was arrested for public intoxication Tuesday morning after police observed the man riding a bicycle in the middle of Watkins Street.

Officers observed the 31-year-old man on a black bike around 3 a.m. in the 1100 block of Watkins Street. Police initiated a traffic stop, because the man did not have proper lighting for nighttime riding.

Upon contact, police said the man displayed bloodshot eyes, and admitted to drinking at a friend’s house prior to riding the bike. The man told police he was en route to his home on Landover Trail.

The man was taken into custody, and transported to the Faulkner County jail.
