Update: Man arrested at Beaverfork for sexual misconduct

Posted: February 12, 2013 - 1:30pm

A Morrilton man was arrested at Beaverfork Lake Tuesday morning after an on-patrol Faulkner County sheriff’s deputy caught the man in a compromising situation.

David Ray Cook, 56, charged with disorderly conduct, sexual misconduct and indecent exposure after the deputy reportedly caught him engaging in lewd sexual activity with inflated balloons. 

According to officials, around 7 a.m. Cook was parked just off Arkansas Highway 25 by the fishing docks next to the lake. He was dressed as a woman, and had pornographic pictures taped to the windows of his car. Deputies also found sex toys and children’s clothing inside of the car.

Cook is currently facing charges in Van Buren County for rape, possession of matter depicting child sex, maintaining a drug premises, and manufacture, delivery and possession of a controlled substance.

Those charges stemmed from an incident in 2006, when prosecutors say Cook gave a 12-year-old girl crystal methamphetamine, then videotaped himself having sex with her in a camper.

According to court affidavits, an informant came forth with information in Aug. 2011 about the incident after allegedly attempting to buy drugs from Cook in Dec. 2010. The informant said that while at Cook's residence in Clinton, he viewed a portion of the video tape. The informant told an investigator that when he recognized the girl in the video, Cook removed it from the VCR. 

Cook also reportedly told the informant that he had videos of other girls.

In an interview with investigators in 2011, the victim identified Cook as her mother's former boyfriend. According to the affidavit, she told investigators the abuse occurred when she was left alone with Cook and continued throughout the course of her mother's relationship with Cook.

In court, defense attorney Jerry Patterson has refuted the claims, contending that the informant is a felon and that information provided by the man was “insufficient” for bringing forth charges.

Cook was released from a Van Buren County jail in June on $75,000 bond. 

A trial date set for Jan. 29 was rescheduled for 9 a.m. April 13 in Van Buren County Circuit Court after Patterson underwent a surgical procedure in January.

On Tuesday, Prosecutor Cody Hiland said he had filed a motion to revoke Cook’s bond.

That request could be heard as early as Wednesday, Hiland said.

Cook is currently being held in Faulkner County Jail.

But with that moustache, he clearly wasn't "pulling it off".

What the...

What kind of demons live in your head where -- while out on charges -- you cross dress, tape up some porno inside your car, and hang out?

I mean wow. The "drug" thing makes me think meth has burned a hole inside this poor guy. Just wow.

Makes me glad we have cops.

And I bet that deputy is going to be hard-pressed to get THAT image out of his head.

He should get hazard duty pay

He should get hazard duty pay and an award for bravery IMO. Misfires can be deadly.
