From Conway Police Department reports
LR woman cited on suspicion of DWI
A 22-year-old Little Rock woman was jailed early Friday morning on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
Lacey M. Reeves was charged with a DWI and also cited for reportedly having fictitious tags and not having any proof of insurance following an early-morning traffic stop.
According to an incident report, an officer pulled Reeves over at 12:13 a.m. after noticing the license plate light on the Honda Civic she was driving was not working and that her tags were registered to another vehicle.
While speaking with Reeves, officer Jonathan M. Vince noted he "detected the odor of intoxicants emitting from the open window" as he explained the reason for the stop, according to the report.
Reeves, who reportedly consented to allowing the officer search her vehicle, was asked to get out of the vehicle. At this point, Vince noted he "again detected the odor of intoxicants now emitting from her" before he "informed Lacey that we would be conducting a series of standardized field sobriety tests."
"Due to the clues displayed during the SFSTs as well as the Modified Romberg and the Lack of Convergence tests, I advised Lacey that she was being placed under arrest and was to be transported to the Conway Police Department for further testing," Vince wrote in his report of the incident. "Lacey was very adamant that she had absolutely zero alcoholic beverages, I then requested that a PBT (portable breath test) machine be brought to my location."
Reeves reportedly showed to have a blood alcohol concentration of 0.10 following the PBT. A second breathalyzer test was reportedly conducted at the police department at 1:29 a.m., which showed Reeves' BAC was 0.11.
Reeves declined paying for another test at a local hospital but said she wanted another test taken at the police department. The third breath test, taken at 2:40 a.m. showed her BAC was 0.09.
Conway man reports he was shot after attempting to return vehicle
A 63-year-old man is accused of pulling a gun on another Conway resident during a dispute over a vehicle on Friday.
Conway police were alerted of the incident Saturday morning, according to an incident report.
The 48-year-old complainant told police that Thomas Dewayne Worthey shot him in the back around 10:30 a.m. Friday when he tried to return a vehicle he'd purchased from Worthey two hours prior.
In his statement, the man said he purchased a vehicle from Worthey for $500 under the impression "it was a working vehicle with only 80,000 miles on it." However, the mileage on the vehicle's title showed it had 85,548 miles. Upon further investigation, the complainant said he learned "the vehicle's actual mileage was well over 200,000 and it had several mechanical problems after getting it to his house."
According to the report, the complainant called Worthey stating he would bring the vehicle back and wanted a refund.
When he arrived at Worthey's residence, the complainant said tensions rose and that Worthey threatened him.
"[The 48-year-old man] stated that he arrived and knocked on the door and Thomas answered and pointed a black pistol at his head," officer Chuck Myers wrote in his report. "According to [the complainant], Thomas told him he was not going to get his money back and to leave. [The complainant] said that as he was leaving, Thomas said he was going to come to his house later and kill him and then shot him in the back."
According to Myers' report, the complainant did not have any visible injuries.
When he didn't see any injuries on the man's back, he proceeded to ask the complainant if Worthey possibly shot at him with a pellet gun.
The complainant said he wasn't sure and that "he didn't know anything about guns and thought it was real," according to the report.
The officer advised the complainant that the vehicle situation was a civil matter but that Conway detectives would begin investigating the claims he made against Worthey regarding a gun being pointed at him Friday.
