Posted: February 20, 2014 - 1:42pm

Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

 

• First-offense DWI at 2200 block of East Oak Street.

Around Midnight on Monday an officer was notified that the driver of a certain model and color of truck had left the scene of an accident. The officer was able to get behind a truck matching the description, pull it over, and identify it as the truck in question. The driver was possibly intoxicated, according to the incident report, and he was placed in custody for suspected DWI. Another officer was assisting, and wrote the following in the report:

“[The subject] was starting to become unruly, so I put my hand on his shoulder and asked him to calm down. [The subject] told me to take my hand off of him or he was going to kick my [expletive]. I then asked him how he was going to do that since he was in handcuffs. … He stated he was going to headbutt me … Then he took a step towards me and lunged his head at my face.

“I grabbed him by the arm and took him to the ground because I felt he couldn’t attempt to headbutt me if he was on the ground.”

A resident reported that a thief or thieves had gotten into his open garage at some point between Tuesday morning and Wednesday morning and stole a 12-gauge Browning Maxus shotgun and its case, a camo-colored duffel bag full of hunting clothes and paraphernalia, and another bag with a number of duck decoys in it.
