The Hyundai Sante Fe hit in shooting: Not a getaway car
  • The Hyundai Sante Fe hit in shooting: Not a getaway car

The Pine Bluff doctor who decided to play policeman and fire his gun at a getaway car driven by a man who robbed Arvest Bank but hit a different car instead, has surrendered his gun and permit and will make restitution to the (innocent) owner of the damaged car in an arrangement worked out with the Pulaski County prosecutor.

Dr. Charles Stearns, who fired from a nearby gas station, will pay Taylor Condrey $995.81 to pay for damage to his car. Stearns' gun, a Kimber Ultra TLE II, is being held by Little Rock police. If Stearns does not engage in any criminal behavior by the anniversary of the incident — Nov. 12, 2013 — his file will be returned to the police with a recommendation that he not be charged. The State Police will make a determination whether Stearns will get his conceal and carry permit returned to him at that time.
