Disturbance, arrest, after former LRPD officer Josh Hastings spat on in courthouse

Trouble at the Pulaski County Courthouse this morning, with a group of people in the hallway outside the 5th Division Courtroom becoming loud, followed by a woman spitting on former LRPD officer Josh Hastings as he was being led from the courtroom. Hastings had just entered a not-guilty plea to a count of manslaughter in the death of 15-year-old Bobby Moore, who was shot at the Shadow Lakes Apartment complex in West Little Rock after Hastings responded to a burglary call.

According to a Pulaski County Sheriff's Department incident report, a group that had gathered outside the door of the court room began to "be loud and use obscene language about the person in the courtroom." When Hastings was coming out, the report says, a woman police identified as Starkeshia Perkins ran over and spit on Hastings. The report says she then kept yelling obscenities at Hastings as he walked away.

Perkins was taken into custody, and later brought before the court in 5th Division. She was told not to return during Hastings' trial, and a no-contact order was issued. She was then released to deputies, who charged her with 3rd degree assault and disorderly conduct, and she was transported to the Pulaski County Detention Center. Once there, it was also discovered that she had a misdemeanor failure to appear warrant relating to traffic issues.
