The following information was taken from incident reports filed by officers at UCAPD. The reports are made available by university police after they are approved by a supervisor. That process takes a few days, which delays our report. This is a complete report of incidents filed for Feb. 6-7.
- Students Haley D. Winebrenner, 21, of Conway and Billy M. Harris, 21, of Conway contacted police to report that Winebrenner’s car had been damaged on Thursday at approximately 8:09 a.m. Harris said that due to the ground being slippery from the ice, he accidentally hit Winebrenner’s car. The damage to both cars is estimated at four hundred dollars.
- Student Kordarryl D. Williams, 21, of Conway contacted the fire department and asked them to send someone to his room on Friday at approximately 4:00 p.m. Williams said that he was making fried chicken and when he finished he thought he turned the stove off, when in fact he accidentally turned it on high. While eating his food in his room he heard the fire alarm go off and saw the grease was on fire. He put the fire out with the extinguisher and the fire department arrived shortly after. Damages were estimated to be over two thousand dollars. Williams and his roommates will be housed somewhere else until their room is fixed.
