Arrests

14000 Maumelle Boulevard at 1144 Arnold Palmer Drive: On Nov. 21, Ashley Sheesley, 41, of Maumelle was arrested and charged with careless and prohibited driving, violation of the Omnibus DWI Act and refusal to submit. At approximately 1:25 a.m. Officer Jeremy Newlin was patrolling on Carnahan Drive when he said he saw a red 2009 Jeep driving west. The Jeep appeared to cross the center line, so Newlin began following it. The Jeep turned south on Highway 100(Maumelle Boulevard) as Newlin continued to follow. The Jeep drifted into the right-hand lane several times and was weaving, he said. Newlin stopped the vehicle on Arnold Palmer Drive. As Newlin approached he said the rear passenger, Ashley Bingle, began vomiting. Newlin asked the driver, Sheesley, for her license, proof of insurance and registration. Sheesley began looking through her credit cards for her license and said she just left Lucky’s bar, he said. The front-seat passenger, Ryan Ragan, found the proof of insurance, but Sheesley was unable to find her driver’s license. Sheesley said her drivers license was in her purse though. Officers Justin Woods and Graham arrived on the scene shorty thereafter. Newlin asked Sheesley to step out of the vehicle, which she complied. He said Sheesley was unsteady on her feet and she touched the side of the Jeep for support. Sheesley was wearing high-heeled sandals. Newlin asked Sheesley if she would like to take her sandals off. Sheesley kicked her sandals under the Jeep and cursed, he said. Sheesley said she knows several police officers and asked Newlin to call them. Sheesley had bloodshot glassy eyes and an odor of intoxicants about her, he said. Sheesley said she had a fruity drink, but she was not drunk. Newlin attempted to perform the Horizontal Gaze and Nystagmus test on Sheesley, but he said she would not obey instructions. Sheesley would not follow the stimulus with her eyes and she kept talking. Sheesley said she teaches Standardized Field Sobriety Tests at UAMS, Newlin said. During the test, Newlin saw a lack of smooth pursuit and nystagmus with Sheesley’s eyes. After starting the test over several times due to her inability to follow directions, Sheesley began crying, he said. Woods attempted to perform the test on Sheesley also, but she continued to be uncooperative, so he could not finish. Woods instructed Sheesley to turn around and she began pulling away into the roadway. Woods and Newlin grabbed Sheesley by the arms and placed her under arrest. Sheesley was secured in Newlin’s patrol car. Brian Sheesley took possession of the Jeep at Ms. Sheesley’s request. Ragan and Bingle agreed to go with Mr. Sheesley. Ms. Sheesley then began complaining of neck pain from a prior surgery and Newlin took the handcuffs off of her, he said. Sheesley declined medical treatment and was transported to the police department where Woods performed the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. During the walk and turn test, the police report records that Sheesley allegedly said “I’ve walked the straight line on acid.” Sheesley was cursing and screaming at officers and was extremely uncooperative, he said. Sheesley attempted to give a breath sample, but only registered one sufficient sample in five attempts. The sufficient sample was .180 blood alcohol count. Officers attempted to give Sheesley a citation to appear in court, but Sheesley refused to sign the citation, he said. Sheesley was processed and taken to Pulaski County Jail.
