Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

• Conway police were dispatched to a local nursing home on Saturday after two residents engaged in an altercation that neither could recall.  According to a police report, another resident and witness to the incident told police that two female residents, ages 88 and 76, were involved in a physical disturbance after one wheeled past the bedroom of the other, calling her “a s***.”  The witness told police that after the woman called the other the name several times, the woman “rolled up” to her verbal attacker and began hitting her in the arm. Police took photos at the scene and a report was made at the request of an employee for their records.

• The driver of a gold Hyundai was arrested on Tuesday at Griffith Street on a warrant for contempt of court after an on-duty officer observed what appeared to be the number 13 drawn on red paper and affixed to a license plate in place of the year. When police stopped the man, he reportedly admitted the license plate had been altered. The man provided a title showing the vehicle had been purchased on Sept. 6 from Coran Auto. He also provided his license but produced no proof of insurance. The man was taken into custody and transported to Faulkner County jail, where he was cited for fictitious tags, failure to pay registration, no insurance and driving on a suspended license. The license plate was removed from the car and turned in to driver control and the car was towed from the scene.
