A Conway woman says she recently witnessed a person break out the rear window of her neighbor’s vehicle.
The woman told police she observed the person run to the vehicle, break out the window and run away. Police spoke to the victim, who was unable to provide any further information on a possible suspect.
•Public intoxication, Interstate 40.
A 53-year-old Conway man was arrested Tuesday night for public intoxication after police say an officer nearly hit the man when he ran into the roadway.
Police responded to the area around 11:59 p.m. after receiving reports of an intoxicated person on the interstate.
"I was traveling westbound, passing the 125 on-ramp when a male jumped out into the roadway from the shadowed roadside," the responding officer noted in the incident report. "I slammed on the brakes to avoid hitting the male."
The officer stated he heard the man say "well s***" after bringing his vehicle to a stop.
Police noted the male’s unsteadiness and strong odor of alcohol upon making contact with the individual. When asked what he was doing, the male stated he was going to California.
After being taken into custody, police say the man became "very agitated" and cursed at police for "bothering him." While searching the male’s belongings, police say the man told a dog that was with him to bite the officer.
"At which time the dog began to growl and bite toward me," an officer noted.
Animal welfare was called to take the dog to a shelter since the male was being arrested, police said. While en route to the Faulkner County jail, police said the man continued to yell and curse.
