A late-night altercation over a designated ride home from a local pizza location resulted in one arrest and the confiscation of a large knife.
According to the police report, an on-duty officer was sitting in the parking lot of Bear’s Den Pizza on Farris Road around 2:30 a.m. Sunday when he overhead shouting and noticed what appeared to be two people fighting outside of the business.
Officials with the Conway Police Department say Darrius J. Davis, 19, of Conway, approached a 27-year-old Conway man unknown to him outside of the restaurant and asked him for a ride home “because he was too drunk to drive.”
The man told police when he denied Davis’ request, Davis laid in front of the car.
As the confrontation continued, the man alleged Davis procured a knife.
As the officer approached the scene, Davis was walking away, and when the officer told him to stop, he reportedly threw something into the road.
Davis denied pulling a knife on the man and told police the man had attempted to run over him with the car.
Police recovered a 10-inch fixed blade Gerber knife from the scene.
Davis was apprehended and booked into Faulkner County jail for aggravated assault.
