Posted by Arkansas 911 News Chief Editor Paul Maddox

All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.

Arkansas State Police Trooper Parker was on patrol on Highway 7 South in the area of the Lake Hamilton Bridges when he initiated a traffic stop on a blue Jeep Grand Cherokee at Long Island Drive.  Rather than pull over and deal with the trooper, this vehicle fled south.

Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol Units arrived to assist.

Ultimately, no one was located in the woods or around the scene.
