CPD handles cracked phone dispute
Conway officers were called to handle a dispute between residents after one of the men allegedly chased the other down Oak Street on a bicycle shortly after 10 p.m. Wednesday.
According to an incident report, Colton Ray McCormack, 25, and James Shawn Perritt, 50, were both at the fountain by the Conway Chamber of Commerce when McCormack reportedly dropped his phone while petting Perritt's dog. McCormack was upset that his phone screen cracked during the incident and demanded Perritt pay for repairs.
Perritt reportedly left the area with his dog immediately once tensions became heated and called 911. While on the phone with dispatchers to report McCormack for following him, Perritt drove past a Conway officer at the intersection of Hamilton and Oak streets and proceeded to flag down the officer, according to the report.
While on the line with dispatchers, Perritt told the officer "he was being chased by another male riding on a bicycle who was agitated and hostile towards" him.
Moments later, McCormack rode up on his bicycle "and began yelling at me that he wanted Perritt arrested for breaking his (McCormack's) phone," the officer wrote in his report.
After listening both sides, the officer learned McCormack was petting Perritt's dog by the fountain when "Perritt's dog somehow caused McCormick to drop his phone, cracking the screen."
Both individuals were advised of the misdemeanor warrants process in order to pursue charges against the other if they wished, and McCormack was ultimate issued a warning citation for driving a bicycle without any lights at night.
26-year-old faces DWI, drug charges following crash
A Searcy man faces several drug charges along with a DWI following a Wednesday crash.
Police responded to a rollover accident around 11 p.m. Wednesday along Hairston Avenue, where "multiple bystanders on scene expressed concern that [the suspect] may be impaired due to the odor of intoxicant[s] coming from his person upon exiting the vehicle and the fact that he 'blew' through the stop sign," according to an incident report.
Officers on scene also noticed the suspect, 26-year-old Jeffery Dylan McVay, smelled strongly of alcohol and ultimately informed him they needed him to participate in a few standardized field sobriety tests (SFSTs).
At this point, according to the report, McVay admitted to drinking "two cups of gin and tonic" about two to three hours prior to the crash.
According to the report, he performed poorly on the SFSTs and was arrested on suspicion of a DWI. Authorities has also learned he reportedly had an outstanding warrant out of CPD.
While searching McVay, officers reportedly found a container labeled "Drugs" in one of his front pockets. Inside the container, officers founded "suspected cocain along with multiple items of paraphernalia, an unidentified ble pill, and [two] blue capsules labeled as M. Amphet Salt, which as later identified though a pill identification application as Amphetamine and Dextroamphetamine 10 mg."
"Jeffrey then advised me that he transported the narcotics from California to Arkansas and that he had a prescription for the three blue pills found inside of the metal container," an officer wrote in his report. "Jeffrey also advised officers that the powder was cocaine."
Conway officers also reportedly found a Whip-It container with an empty Whip-It inside of it, along with "approximately 40 Whip-It capsules loose in the vehicle."
"Due to the dangerous nature of the capsules and their potential hazard to the evidence technicians, [authorities] safely disposed of the capsules."
The incident report states McVay agreed to a breathalyzer test that was taken more than an hour after the initial crash. According to the incident report, McVay showed to have a blood alcohol concentration of 0.05 following the breathalyzer test.
McVay was ultimately charged on suspicion of a DWI, three counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of Nitrous Oxide and for recovered pills before being taken to the county jail.
