Sherwood police were called to the area of the back gate of the Little Rock Air Force Base along Arkansas 107 in reference to a disturbance. According to a police report compiled by Officer Steven Henker, LRAFB gate guard Caleb Wedan said that people entering the base advised him that there were two people who were fighting in their car. Wedan approached the car and ordered Gary McCurdy of Jacksonville to get out of the vehicle and he was sitting near a fence. Mary Ilgner of Jacksonville was sitting in the vehicle. Officers were told that a weapon had been removed from the back of the vehicle.

Ilgner told police that she had picked up her son, McCurdy, at the emergency room and was taking him home when he got belligerent with her. She said he got so angry that she pulled over in the airbase driveway to avoid having an accident and try to calm him down. She said her son did not hit her and she did not strike her son.

McCurdy, 29, told police his mom thought he was trying to get her debit card and stated yelling at him and moved into oncoming traffic to scare him. He said he grabbed the wheel to get her to stay in the correct lane. She then pulled over in front of the Airbase and gate guard approached the car and told him to get out. Police found a $600 Smith and Wesson firearm.
