Man arrested after entering store naked

A Benton man was arrested for public intoxication over the weekend after he entered a Conway convenience store nude, officials say.

 


Police were dispatched to a disturbance just before 11 a.m. Saturday at Dusty’s convenience store on Harkrider Street after Adam Marshall Elrod, 18, reportedly entered the store naked, claiming he had been forced by a 48-year-old Little Rock man to drink and do drugs. He also alleged the man threatened to rape him.


Authorities say Elrod was “highly intoxicated.”


He was booked into Faulkner County jail and an investigation into the allegations is ongoing.
