From Conway Police Department reports
Parking lot squabble
A Conway man contacted police after a woman who damaged his vehicle allegedly was refusing to pay for repairs.
The 51-year-old complainant told police Friday morning regarding an incident that occurred in a Kroger parking lot on Feb. 14, according to an incident report.
The man said he was parked outside of the Kroger on Salem Road on the day in question when suddenly "he felt his vehicle move and heard a loud noise." As he got out to check on his vehicle, he noticed a woman was "leaning into a white SUV with hr door pressed against the fender well on his Yukon."
The woman said she did not mean to hit his vehicle and that the strong winds must have pushed her door into his vehicle. According to 51-year-old's statement, the woman "was very rude and told him that she would buy him some 'touch up paint.'"
The woman left the man with her business card, said she would pay for the damages and arranged a date for the man to take his gray 2014 GMC Yukon to Halter's Body Shop, according to the report.
After getting a $545.41 quote from the auto shop, the complainant said he called the woman to let her know but that she became irate so he stopped contacting her altogether and instead filed a police report. Authorities contacted the woman about this issue on Thursday. While talking to police, the woman again said she offered to pay for repairs but that the complainant did not take his vehicle to Helton's like she requested.
Officers provided both parties with the report number associated with the case and told the complainant how to file charges against the woman if he wished to do so.

The man said on Friday, his ex wife's boyfriend threatened to "stomp his [expletive]."
Suspicious vehicle check leads to public intox arrest
A 48-year-old man found sleeping in his vehicle Friday night was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication.
According to an incident report, Conway police were alerted shortly after 9 p.m. Friday of a suspicious vehicle parked in front of a residence in the 630 block of Artis Lane.
Officer Darren K. Baugh soon found a gray 2009 Chevrolet HHR in the area in question, the report states. As he walked up to the vehicle in question, Baugh said he found 48-year-old Kenneth Lynn Powell sleeping behind the wheel.
It took a while to wake up the man sleeping behind the wheel, and after doing so, Baugh ultimately arrested the man on suspicion of public intoxication, according to the report.
"The vehicle [was] shut off with the windows up and all the doors locked. After banging on the driver side window of the vehicle for approximately three minutes, I was able to wake the occupant of the vehicle and convince him to unlock the driver door," the report reads in part. "As soon as the driver door was open, I dete3cted a very strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle as well as the occupant of the vehicle."
According to the report, Powell's speech was slurred and he was also unsteady on his feet.
