Sunday night line

Posted By on Sun, Sep 9, 2012 at 3:39 PM

The line is open. A few items of note:

* RAZORBACK INJURY REPORT: From the UA Athletic Department:

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The following statement regarding injuries is from University of Arkansas football head coach John L. Smith:

“Tevin Mitchel suffered an injury above the shoulders. He was kept in Little Rock last night and will probably stay again tonight. The testing that has been done on Tevin came back favorable for him to recover. He will continue to be monitored and will be doubtful for Saturday.

Tyler Wilson took a hit to the head and was kept in Little Rock last night for observation. His prognosis is good and he will be day-to-day.

Kody Walker suffered a lower leg injury and is likely out for the season. Kaelon Kelleybrew has a bruised arm and is probable for Saturday’s game.”

* INSULT ON INJURY: A Hillcrest resident reports unhappiness for getting ticketed by Little Rock police for parking a car in front of his home.


I'm wondering how many other Hillcrest residents received parking tickets last night for parking in front of their homes during the Razorback game. This is the first time in 13 years this has happened to us. In my opinion, this ordinance should not be enforced for residents parked in front of their homes

Anybody else have any experience with this? I presume this refers to enforcement of rules that ban parking on certain streets during War Memorial events. It was nearly universally ignored yesterday, judging by what I encountered as I tried to thread my way through the streets and traffic to reach the stadium late in the game to help a stranded motorist. Couldn't get there. If they issued one ticket, they could have issued hundreds.

* ENDORSEMENT: Little Rock School Board member Dianne Curry, in a three-way race for election this year, said she's received endorsements from the Little Rock and Arkansas Education Associations and the Central Arkansas Labor Council. She said they'll be joined by others, including legislators and school board members, at a press event Monday. Frances Johnson and Tanya Dixon have also filed for the seat.

* POLICE SHOOTING: Channel 4 has a report on a fatal shooting yesterday by an Alexander police officer, said to be an accident.

UPDATE: A Bryant man is dead at the hands of an Alexander police officer — and the officer says it was all just an accident.

State police say around 4:30 Saturday, Officer Nancy Cummings saw 30-year-old Carelton Wallace walking along Brookwood Road in Alexander.

She told police he had a gun tucked into his waistband. She then says she saw him toss it into the woods.

But while searching him as she tried to arrest him, Officer Cummings says her gun just went off.

Wallace later died at a hospital.

Tonight, the Alexander Police Chief Horace Walters says even though Cummings has less than a year on the job, she — like his other officers — was properly trained.

Walters says, "I run an above-board operation. I do not allow half-hazard policing and above all, I monitor my officers daily."

Officer Cummings is on paid leave while state police continue to investigate. Ultimately, it will be up to the prosecutor to decide on charges.

Original Story:

Mutliple Law Enforcement crews are on the scene of an officer-involved shooting in Saline County.

That's according to the Saline County Sheriff's office.

It happened near the intersection of Lindsey and Brookwood Street in Alexander.

Police say it was a female officer who shot at a male subject. That person has been taken to the hospital but their condition is unknown.

We have pictures from a crew on the scene.
