From Conway Police Department reports

CRMC staff report feeling threatened by patient

A Conway woman was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication last week after reportedly yelling at and acting hostile toward hospital staff.

According to an incident report, police were called to the Conway Regional Medical Center shortly before 2:30 a.m. Friday regarding a patient who was "heavily intoxicated, suicidal and was acting belligerent."

Emergency Room staff said the suspect, 37-year-old Heather Rennea Pasco, began acting aggressively toward hospital staff while in her room. According to the report, hospital staff called police after the woman "became increasingly aggressive and hostile towards" employees.

Employees told police "Pasco would not remain in her room" and cursed staff members.

The 37-year-old admitted to police that she "had drank a lot of alcohol" because she was upset but confirmed she was not feeling suicidal.

According to the report, employees were concerned that once officers left the scene, the woman would "at out again in an aggressive manner." Because the woman was unable to care for herself and acted aggressively toward hospital staff, authorities arrested her on suspicion of public intoxication.

Woman allegedly intoxicated during court hearings

A Russellville woman was arrested Friday morning after she began acting "unruly" and yelled at court officials, according to an incident report.

Barbara Gardner, 52, was at the Faulkner County District Court in downtown Conway when she allegedly began "causing a disturbance by being loud and unruly" around 9:30 a.m. Friday.

A deputy said that after asking Gardner to calm down, she refused and continued being loud.

After handcuffing the Russellville woman, officers could smell alcohol on her breath, the report states. Officer Trevor Hardy also noted the woman had slurred speech and that her eyes were bloodshot and watery.

Gardner admitted to drinking the night before and also said she drank two beers around 8 a.m. prior to heading over to court, the report states.

Authorities attempted to have the woman take a portable Breathalyzer test, but she failed to give a large enough breath sample four times. Following the failed breath tests, officers opted to arrest the woman on suspicion of public intoxication, the report states.

Dealership reports theft

A local dealership called police Friday morning after suspecting an ex-employee stole from the business.

According to an incident report, a salesman at A1 Auto Sales called the Conway Police Department around 11:30 a.m. Friday after noticing several tools were missing.

The complainant said he suspected Lance Crowder had taken "several hundred dollars worth of tools and a dealer tag."

According to the report, the complainant said he confronted the 29-year-old suspect regarding the theft and Crowder admitted to taking "several tools." The complainant said the suspect claimed "he would bring the tools back, but never made contact with [the business] again."
