A Thursday afternoon accident involving a vehicle and a pedestrian at Oak Street and Interstate 40 resulted in the arrest of one for public intoxication.
Conway police responded to a report of a man who was struck by a car while walking in front of the vehicle merging onto Oak Street from I-40.
No one in the car was injured. The pedestrian, identified as Terry Glenn Bailey, 59, of Hoxie, refused medical treatment at the scene and was not seriously injured, but was believed to be under the influence of alcohol.
According to the report, Bailey smelled of intoxicants and was unsteady on his feet. He reportedly admitted to officers that he had been drinking, and when police attempted to administer a horizontal gaze nystagmus test, the man told the officer, "I have been drinking. I can't do this."
Bailey, who is currently on parole, was taken to Faulkner County jail, where he was cited for public intoxication.
He was also instructed to report to his parole officer "as soon as possible."
