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 March 26-30.
- Students Consuelo Monique Butler, 19, and Lashawnda Deann Hill, 20, locked themselves out of Butler’s apartment with Butler’s 3-month-old child inside at 6:17 p.m. Butler said she and Hill were unloading her belongings from her vehicle when Hill shut the door behind them without realizing it was locked. They called the RA, but the key wasn’t working. Butler’s child was in a car seat on the couch, and had been alone for 45 minutes. The officer used her baton to break a window next to the door in order to reach inside and unlock the door. Butler entered the apartment and consoled her child, who was fine. The Physical Plant boarded up the broken window.
- No reports filed.
- Officers responded to a fight in the Bears Den Pizza parking lot between Stony Lance Hayes, 34, Dakota Wade Ready, 24, Jason Andrew Ferry, 23, and Dylan Brady Day, 22, at 2:09 a.m. Restaurant bouncer Ryan Michael Wolff, 23, said more individuals were involved, but some fled before police arrived. Wolff said Hayes and Ferry were fighting Day and Ready. He said he saw Hayes hit Day and both of them had wounded faces. Hayes’ and Day’s stories conflict the bar staff’s. All four were taken to jail, and police learned Ferry had a warrant out of Faulkner County for Contempt of Court.
- Student Jonathan Samuel McDougal, 22, almost hit an officer’s car with his Jeep at 11:28 p.m. McDougal didn’t have his lights on and the officer couldn’t see him. McDougal had bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol and admitted to drinking. After giving McDougal sobriety tests, the officer arrested him for public intoxication.
- An unidentified woman approached an officer at 10:53 p.m. saying a man had tried to enter her house. She said there was a man trying to enter through the window, and when she went outside to see what was happening, the man screamed obscenities and demanded to be let into the house. She described the man as approximately 5’10” tall, black, with his shirt wrapped around his neck instead of being worn. Another witness, an unidentified man on a bicycle, said he saw the man go toward Hardy St. or Ash St. with his shirt tucked under his arm. UCA police notified Conway police, because they were already in the area searching for people who were fighting nearby. Police were unable to locate the man.
- Nonstudent Valdeana Kenyetta Connors, 23, failed to yield and was pulled over, then she told UCA police that she was on the phone with Conway police because her brother, Kenneth Leverne Connors, 21, attacked her. She said her brother, who had been in the car with her, threw a drink on her, grabbed her hair and hit her head. There weren’t visible marks on her head, but the car was wet. Kenneth was caught and detained, but was released after Valdeana didn’t press charges.
- An anonymous informant told UCA police of students smoking marijuana at Stadium Park at 11:40 p.m. Officers approached the apartment, and a resident, student Sarah Jean McDaniel, 19, answered the door. McDaniel let the officer in. McDaniel’s boyfriend, student Joshua Jordan Talley, 22, was in the living room with her. The living room had no signs of drugs. McDaniel’s roommate, student Sha’candra Ra’sha Walton, 20, and her boyfriend, nonstudent Kenneth Croon, 21, were in an apartment bedroom. When police approached the bedroom door, Walton said, “Just a minute,” and opened the door after a few moments. The officer smelled marijuana and saw smoke in the room. When questioned, Croon said they’d smoked all their marijuana, and Walton said she’d flushed the remainder down the toilet. Walter turned in a marijuana grinder, and a search yielded a plastic hair gel container with marijuana ash. Walter was given judicial board citations and Croon was banned from UCA. McDaniel and Talley weren’t charged with anything.
