From Conway Police Department reports
Pedestrian vs. vehicle crash leads to arrest
A Conway resident reportedly ran over a Little Rock man last week in a gravel lot near the intersection of Ingram and Willow streets.
According to an incident report, first responders were called to the gravel lot at 10:19 a.m. Sept. 3 regarding a pedestrian vs. vehicle crash involving a silver 2008 Toyota Avalon.
The man driving the Toyota, 42-year-old Warren Cecil Pearson II, told officer Carson Howard he did not mean to hit the alleged victim but had tried to “scare him off.”
Pearson claimed the alleged victim “had been harassing him all morning, by calling multiple time[s] and then by writing profanity on the fence that separates the lot from [Pearson’s mother’s] home,” the incident report states. The harassment ensured, Pearson said, after he refused to loan the Little Rock man $20.
After dropping his daughter off at school and running a few other errands, Pearson said he returned home, where he was met by the alleged victim in the gravel lot near his mother’s residence.
When the Little Rock man rounded the corner of the fence, Pearson said he was “wilding a crow bar.”
At this point, he drove toward the alleged victim in an attempt to scare him away. However, the report states that “his prosthetic leg somehow got stuck, which made him continue driving, hitting [the Little Rock man] with his car, and continuing through the wooden fence.”
According to the report, Pearson’s mother heard “a lot of commotion outside” when she walked outside to see the Little Rock man “inside her fence line, swearing and cussing.”
Her son had already parked his car when she rushed outside to see what was going on, she told officer Howard. When she walked over to check on the alleged victim, he “was on all fours,” so she called 911.
Pearson, who was suffering from high blood pressure during the incident, was given a sandwich and an insulin shot while police investigated the crash, according to the report. Once he was OK, the report states he was ultimately arrested regarding outstanding warrants that were issued against him.
Ex-girlfriend suspected of vandalizing apartment
A Conway woman is suspected of breaking into her ex-boyfriend’s apartment and dumping a bottle of liquor onto his bed last week.
A 36-year-old man called police around 3:20 p.m. Sept. 3 after learning someone broke into and vandalized his home, according to an incident report.
The man said he learned of the break-in after “he received a call from his brother that his ex-girlfriend had gone by his house” and that a window was busted out. Following the alert, the 36-year-old said he went by his house to check on it since he had “been gone a couple days.”
Once he went inside, the man said e found “old cooking grease and body wash all over his apartment,” the report states.
Along with this, the man said “a whole bottle of liquor was poured on his bed” and that he suspected his ex-girlfriend was responsible, adding that a note was also left behind.
The complainant said that if his ex-girlfriend was responsible, she would have been violating a no-contact order issued by the court.
Online records show that the 36-year-old complainant currently faces a felony battery charge and has been ordered to have no contact with his 26-year-old ex-girlfriend.
Officer Frankie L. Henderson told the complainant how he could file misdemeanor charges against his ex-girlfriend if he wished to do so.
According to the report, damages were estimated at $450 at the time the report was filed.
