All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.

Hot Springs Police Officer First Class Davis reports that officers with his department responded to the call of a burglary alarm July 18, 2021, around 2AM, at a go-cart track facility on Albert Pike Road.

OFC Davis arrived and found an open window on a building at the property.  As soon as he locked onto that window, a man ran from the window and hid behind a dumpster.  OFC Davis gave commands to ‘come out with your hands up’ and the man did.  He was promptly arrested.

The window had been damaged to the tune of $100.

A shoe print on the inside of the window seemed to match the shoe pattern on the shoes the suspect was wearing at the time they found him.

The suspect was identified as Patrick Baker Harrison, 30, of San Carlos Cove in Hot Springs.  He appeared to be under the influence of either ripple, Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne or some other government regulated aqua vitae.  Whatever he had allegedly been drinking manifested his appearance at the time  to include blood shot/watery eyes and slurred speech with the aroma of intoxicating beverage emanating from his breath.
