Man asking for phone charger jailed on public intox charge
A 41-year-old man was arrested on a public intox charge Saturday afternoon after reportedly going door-to-door asking local residents to use their phone charges.
Lonnie Womack of Conway faces two misdemeanor charges -- public intoxication and possession of a controlled substance -- after authorities were alerted of a suspicious man walking along Cedar Hill road and through the Ozark General Store along Highway 65, according to an incident report.
Individuals in the area "advised there was a male in the area that was looking into people's homes and knocking on the door asking for a phone charger," the report states.
Officer Jeremy H. Perkins checked with Ozark General Store staff after unsuccessfully searching for the suspect along Cedar Hill Road and Rolling Hills Drive and learned the suspicious man had just left the store and was headed toward the North Hills subdivision. A gas station clerk reportedly told Perkins that Womack was acting strange while at the store and believed he was intoxicated.
"The gas station clerk advised that the male was also in the store asking for a phone charger," Perkins noted in his report. "She stated that the male seemed drunk and out of it. She said that she felt uncomfortable with him in the store because he was acting weird. She said that when he left, he went walking up Hwy 65 towards the main part of the city."
Perkins soon located the 41-year-old suspect near the intersection of Range and Plateau drives in the North Hills subdivision.
Womack was reportedly walking around with an alcoholic beverage in a Styrofoam cup because his "old lady" kicked him out of her car and "he was just walking trying to find a way to call a friend."
According to the report, after the suspect agreed to allowing Perkins to search him, authorities found he had a small bag of suspected marijuana in one of his pockets.
Following the incident, he was ultimately charged with public intox and possession of a controlled substance and taken to the county jail.
