At approximately 1:16 a.m. Officer Casey Canady was on patrol when he saw a silver Honda Accord turn north onto Highway 100 from Montpellier Drive. An ACIC check of the license plate showed the vehicle belonged to Robert Graham of Little Rock. Canady watched the vehicle travel at a low rate of speed and get into the left turn lane at Highway 100 and Carnahan Drive. The vehicle then made an illegal U-turn to travel south on Highway 100. The vehicle traveled at approximately 25 miles per hour and then turned west onto Audubon Drive. The vehicle then turned north on Club Manor Drive and then east onto Town Centre. The vehicle then turned into the parking lot behind Beef O’ Brady’s and stopped. Canady waited a few moments to see if the vehicle would continue to move, but it stayed in the parking lot. Canady turned on his blue lights and made contact with the driver, Pettis. Pettis appeared to be nervous and distracted. Canady had to repeat questions several times to Pettis before he would answer. When asked where he was coming from, Pettis said he was coming from Little Rock and was trying to find his cousin’s apartment. When asked where his cousin lived, Pettis said he lived somewhere near IHOP. At this time, Lt. Joseph Poole arrived. An ACIC check on Pettis showed he was currently under active supervision and that his driver’s license was suspended. Pettis also had prior criminal history that included possession of a controlled substance and aggravated robbery. Canady then asked Pettis to step out of the vehicle and he gave consent to perform a pat down for weapons. Canady then asked Pettis for consent to search the vehicle, to which Pettis consented. During the search of the vehilce, Canady found two blunts that smelled of marijuana between the driver’s seat and door frame. One of the blunts was wrapped in aluminum foil and had a strong chemical smell emanating from it. At this time Pettis was placed into custody for possession of a controlled substance. In the center console there was a small plastic bag containing four white oblong pills, later identified by officers as penicillin. There ware also several small marijuana roaches in the ash tray in the center console. Officer Woods arrived and read Pettis his Miranda Warning. After being read his warning, Pettis said that the two blunts were his but that he did not know to whom the pills belonged. Pettis was transported to Maumelle Police Department for processing. Frank Harrison and Son took possession of the vehicle and removed it from the scene. Officers suspected that the blunt wrapped in aluminum was PCP. City Attorney Janan Dais was notified and set bail at $5,000. Canady disposed of the penicillin and small marijuana roaches in the presence of Woods. Pettis was charged and transported to Pulaski County Jail.

At approximately 4:15 a.m., Officers Justin Woods and Shane Graham saw a black man entering Studio 710. They also saw a blue Dodge Caravan in the parking lot. Officers attempted to make contact with the man at the front door of the building. Officers found the front door locked so they checked the rear of the building. The officer found the black man at the rear of the building and instructed him to step away from the rear door so they could speak to him. The man would not comply with officers’ commands. He then ran into the building, slamming the door behind him. Woods followed the subject inside and Graham went to the front of the building. Graham was unable to gain entry into the building due to the front door being locked. Graham then made his way to the rear of the building to assist Woods. When Graham got to the rear of the building, he saw the man fleeing from Woods through the rear door. Woods and Graham gave the man several verbal commands to stop running without results. Graham then pursued the man on foot across Lake Pointe Drive toward Pine Forest Elementary. Graham then lost sight of the man in the wooded area south of Pine Forest Elementary. The officers then attempted to establish a perimeter while waiting for a canine. The officers then received multiple 911 calls from 301 Pine Forest in regards to an unknown man attempting to gain entry into their residence. A woman who lived at the address said a man began constantly ringing her doorbell and knocking on the door to gain entry. Barnes said the subject told her his name was “Isaac.” Another woman who lives at the same address said a man was ringing the doorbell and banging on her door in an attempt to gain entry. The second woman said the man told her his name was “Isaac” as well. Lt. Joseph Poole then arrived at 301 Pine Forest and found the man on the doorstep of apartment No. 17. The man was identified as Dale. Graham and Woods arrived on the scene and put Dale in the backseat of their patrol vehicle. Woods verbally advised Dale of his Miranda Warning and Dale waived his rights. The officers then made contact with the owner of Studio 710 who said he did not want to press charges for commercial burglary. Dale was then taken to Maumelle Police Department for processing. An ACIC/NCIC check showed Dale had a warrant for a parole violation out of the Arkansas Board of Parole and no bond warrant out of Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office.
