All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.

Garland County School Resource Deputy Sheriff Kizer was in position with his patrol car for monitoring school zone traffic because school was either about to let out or in the process of letting out for the day.

Deputy Kizer allegedly observed a traffic violation with regard to this car.  He set off after it and the driver allegedly took off on him.  They wound up in a westbound pursuit on the Bypass with the suspect vehicle allegedly reaching sustained speed over 100 Mph.

The parade took the Central Avenue Northbound Exit and made it to the area of Crawford Drive before the Deputy lost sight of the suspect vehicle.

As the pursuit raged on, the deputy was calling for back up over the radio.  GCSO 911 Dispatchers got the Hot Springs Police notified quickly and several units were already in the area of Oaklawn Park.  The suspect vehicle was seen blazing it down Woodlawn Avenue.  The vehicle was located parked and abandoned on Summer Street at the intersection of Alpine Street.

As police were investigating the car and it’s contents, the owner of the car arrived at the scene.  GCSO Patrol Lieutenant Dodd, as a matter of common procedure, had the lady identify herself, AND he ran the license plate number of the car she arrived in.  The license plate (and or license plate sticker) was reported to have been stolen out of Hot Springs.  HSPD took charge of that investigation.

The pursuit suspect vehicle was towed from the scene.

It is unknown to me what action (if any) was taken by HSPD in the case of the allegedly stolen license plate situation.
