From Conway Police Department reports

Public intoxication

On Feb. 6, police responded to Walmart on Dave Ward Drive in reference to a an intoxicated personal call. The caller said “a female urinated in the parking lot and got back into a tan Lincoln Navigator,” according to the report.

The woman was sitting in the driver’s seat trying to light a cigarette. When she rolled down her window to talk with an officer, he noted “I immediately smelled the odor of intoxicants and asked her to step out of the vehicle.”

She said she was in Conway “visiting someone she met on the internet,” the report stated. She left his apartment after a “minor altercation” and could no longer stay there, according to the report.

The woman told officers she had driven to Walmart because “she knew she was too intoxicated to drive home” and that she had intended “to sit in the parking lot until she could drive home,” the report stated.

She said her friends and family lived in Hot Springs and couldn’t come get her.

“Due to the various unsuccessful attempts at getting [the woman] a place to go or get a ride, and her level of intoxication, I decided it was unsafe to leave her alone in the parking lot,” the officer wrote in the arrest report.
