Hot Springs Police Officer Brown was on patrol in the Hot Springs Mall Parking Lot last week just before noon when he allegedly observed 2 females run from JC Penny’s carrying a large amount of clothing. The clothes were still on hangars (not in shopping bags) and several items were being dropped along the way.
The suspects allegedly hastily jammed all of the clothing into a black Chevrolet Malibu and got in the car as Off. Brown arrived. He turned on all the police lights and parked in front of the Malibu. As the officer exited his unit and began issuing verbal commands, the driver of the Malibu, Dayneisha Hill/Goins allegedly rammed the police car causing approximately $1,000 in damage. After impact, the suspect vehicle allegedly fled through the parking lot striking another parked car (approximately $5,000 in damage) and continued northbound in a reckless manner through the parking lot.
The suspect vehicle attempted to turn onto Central Avenue, but was blocked by backed up traffic. Both suspects allegedly abandoned the car and fled on foot. Officer Brown quickly caught up to the suspects. They were both stopped and arrested under threat of tazer.
