From Conway Police Department reports

Pedestrian charged with public intox

A Conway man was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication Thursday evening.

According to an incident report, authorities were called around 6:45 p.m. Thursday after a witness reported feeling concerned for a man who appeared intoxicated who was walking past the Conway Family Bowl.

Police soon located the suspect, who was stumbling near the roadway.

After speaking 34-year-old David James Martin, officer Steven Culliford said he could tell the man's eyes were bloodshot and that he smelled strongly of alcohol, the report states. Authorities also learned the 34-year-old had an outstanding warrant issued against him by the Conway County Sheriff's Office.

Martin was arrested on scene on suspicion of public intoxication. While headed to the Faulkner County Detention Center, he reportedly began yelling obscenities at Culliford.

The 34-year-old continued making derogatory comments prior to banging his head on the plastic barrier in Culliford's patrol unit once they arrived at the jail, the report states.

Women witness tire slashing

Two women flagged down police late Thursday after witnessing a man slash their neighbor's tire.

According to an incident report, officer Vanessa M. Pieper was flagged down around 11:15 p.m. Thursday while patrolling Ingram and Monroe streets.

The two women who flagged down police said they were sitting on their front porch in Ingram Village when they saw a suspicious man walking around their neighbor's house.

"They stated he walked around to one of the windows on the side of the house and began tampering with it, and then proceeded towards the gray Subaru that was parked in the driveway," the report reads in part. "They stated he squatted down beside one of the tires of the vehicle, and looked as if he were attempting to deflate it by unscrewing the cap."

At this point, one of the women flashed her lights at him from across the street. As soon as she flashed her vehicle's lights at the suspect, "he stabbed the tire with a knife and took off running behind the house," according to their statements.

The two said they attempted to alert their neighbor but that no one answered the door when they knocked. Piper also tried to contact the homeowners, but no one answered the door so she opted to leave her name and number on a card under the windshield wiper of the damaged vehicle.
