The mean streets of Little Rock; ex-lovers' quarrel ends with tire shot out

Posted By on Thu, Aug 21, 2014 at 9:44 AM

The daily account of Little Rock police activities illustrates how often personal relationships turn into criminal activities. Consider this summary of a police report made Tuesday night.

A 25-year-old woman went to the Northwest police substation to report that she'd met her 23-year-old former boyfriend and baby daddy at 6200 Col. Glenn. They argued. It became physical.  He allegedly threw her to the ground. She was scratched. When she tried to drive away with her young son, she said her former boyfriend and his new squeeze followed her. Eventually, the crime crime victim said she got behind her former boyfriend's car. She followed them to 36th and Shackleford. There, the boyfriend's car stopped. New girlfriend got out and fired a black and silver semi-automatic at the victim's vehicle. The shot flattened a tire. Former boyfriend and girlfriend drove off, with ex no longer in pursuit. A relative arrived to help change the tire and the victim then reported to police. She was advised to call the prosecuting attorney and to seek a protection order against her former boyfriend.

No word if police advised about the wisdom of following a former boyfriend with a new girlfriend.
