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 14-15.
- Nonstudent Justin Vandaveer, 24, of Conway was issued a citation for public intoxication. Officers responded to a report of a man passed out in his car near the stop sign at the intersection of Farris and Oaklawn. When the officer approached the car, Vandaveer got out. As the officer talked to him, he noticed that Vandaveer seemed very confused and that he smelled of alcohol. Vandaveer said his car was on the side of the road because he was waiting for it to start.
