Campus Police Beat: Week of February 25

The UA Little Rock Police Department had reports of a fire, online harassment and a DWI arrest this week.


Officer Gavin Hurst and Officer Gary McGee received a call about a green truck blocking the Lot 9 entrance on Feb. 26 at 8:05 p.m. The caller stated that the driver was driving recklessly and was concerned that he could be intoxicated. Officer Hurst pulled over the driver and asked him to step out of his truck, where then he processed to put handcuffs on him for further investigation.

In his report, Hurst stated that he could smell “a slight odor of an intoxicant” coming from the man. He also stated that the driver did not know where he was and, after running his name through dispatch, Hurst found out that the driver’s license had been suspended for a previous DWI and that he also had a warrant for his arrest out of North Little Rock Police Department. After a series of sobriety tests, the man was taken to the Pulaski County Detention Center for intake processing.


Officer Rodney Barnes received a call about a harassment via Facebook on Feb. 28 at 1:32 p.m. When Barnes arrived, he met with a woman who said that a 36-year-old woman has been harassing her on Facebook, texting her phone, and had filed a report about her with HR Title IX here are at UA Little Rock.

The HR report that the suspect filed said that the victim had been making threats against the LGBTQ+ community, which the victims say she never made. According to the victim, the issue with the woman started when the victim found about-about the 36-year-old being in a relationship with her 19-year-old son. The victim stated that she didn’t feel something was right about the relationship so she looked the 36-year-old on the internet. After her son found out about this, he told his girlfriend who then contacted her on Facebook stating that she would be seeing her in person. The woman then reportedly sent an email to her employer at UA Little Rock and the Sherwood Police Department. UA Little Rock has since closed to complaint made by the woman.


On March 1 at 5:58 p.m., the UA Little Rock Police Department received a report about fire at the Chancellor’s Residence. When they arrived at the scene, the Little Rock Fire Department had already put out the fire which they later found out was caused by burnt food.
