The license tag returned to a white Chevrolet truck and during a traffic stop Lands was a passenger but officers said they found a syringe. When he was placed in a cell at Maumelle Police Department, Ivey said he heard a clanking sound and found a spoon Lands had concealed inside his boot.

He was transported to the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility.

In addition to the drugs found, police said they also found a .40 caliber Smith and Wesson semi-automatic pistol loaded with eight rounds in the 2012 GMC Sierra pickup truck.

Officer Justin Woods said he saw a Chevrolet pickup run a red light and stopped the vehicle and discovered Stewart’s license had been suspended for DWI and he had an active warrant from Morrilton. When he smelled the odor of intoxicants, Woods said he asked the man to step outside the vehicle and Stewart failed on field sobriety test but said he couldn’t take anymore because he said he had a bad back and knees. Riding to jail in the back of Woods patrol car, Woods said Stewart “was very uncooperative and agitated” and “spoke to officers in a hostile tone telling Stewart “We were lucky he has calmed down in his older age because we would have to tase him or shoot him.” Stewart also told officers his grandmother recently passed away and left him $3 million he was using to sue officers and “get us fired.” Woods said a Breathalyzer test indicated Stewart had a blood alcohol count of 0.119. Stewart then complained he needed medication left in his vehicle so MEMS was called in and they transported Stewart to Baptist Health Medical Center with a citation and a court date.

She told officers she had been at Bar Louie in Little Rock drinking and came home where she lived with her boyfriend. When police escorted her inside to use the phone to call someone to pick up up, they said she couldn’t think of anyone to call then became “very agitated and began yelling,” walked outside into the street and asked “which police car she needed to get into.” She was later transported to the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility.
