ROGERS, AR (AP)- Rogers police have arrested a man and a woman after someone found a 5-year-old girl chained to a piece of furniture at a residence.

Authorities say David Bridgeman and Jana Slinkard are accused of permitting the abuse of a minor and false imprisonment. Officers arrested them on Friday and they remained in custody at the Benton County jail on Saturday.

According to a probable cause affidavit, a woman staying with Bridgeman and Slinkard awoke Tuesday after hearing a girl crying. The woman found the child bound to a dresser with a chain and a loop and freed her.

Bridgeman told police he restrained the girl after finding her outside one night without a shirt or shoes.

A jailer said she didn't know if Bridgeman or Slinkard had retained attorneys.

I'm going to give you exactly what you want OP, which is to start more BS. Of course it was white people, because the black kids were out running in he street being unsupervised, begging people for money. See how ridiculous that sounds?? No one takes you seriously when you act like a two year old, begging for attention.

I will add my 2 cents in here, if you want to play that way..........
When in doubt about crime statistics, and who commits most of it, go check out the arrest reports on your own and see with your own two eyes what is going on. Snagging and dragging a report from a town many miles away, and even neglecting to post anything else, but that crime is dishonest and reaching.

I'm not going to point fingers, because I certainly don't want anyone to think or say that I am neglecting the fact that no race is above breaking the laws and committing crimes.......but posting this was rather ridiculous,and a huge waste of time and space, IMO. Anyone that had time and wanted to waste it could spend days posting only one sided crimes against any race.

Oh and Negr0.......I don't really know what you are out to prove on here by your racist posts, always filled with hatred towards whites, but I think that you loose a lot of ground, because even people that take up for blacks have got to seethe whenever they read your posts. YOU and your mentality is one of the biggest reasons for racism.
Every time you post, its always full blown white hatred and stereotyping.......the exact same thing that when whites do it, we are labeled as being racist.
You are hurting your cause and helping it none. You really need to stop........not for me, or any other white person, but for blacks that are good, wonderful people, and deserving of respect as much as any other person of any color.

Guess you haven't been following up with all of the news in Northwest Arkansas. Google home invasion leaves one man dead from a couple weeks ago. You guessed it, 3 black thugs broke into a house off of campus when the home owner pulled out his gun and killed one of those scumbags. The other 2 got away. Didn't care to post about that one did you? Too bad he didn't get a shot at the others!

If you are black (and that's a big if for any anonymous poster anyplace on the Internet) then you need to remember that bigotry and racism is just as evil in you and Obama and the Dishonorable Rev. Wright as it is in any other person, no matter what the color. Racism comes in all colors, just as decency and honor do. What idiot parents do to their kids is bad enough, but when you start trying to use kids as a club, you need to disappear, no matter what race, religion, or gender you are.

POINSETT COUNTY, AR (KAIT)- After an investigation into a sexual assault, state police and officers from the Poinsett County Sheriff's Office arrested a man, who was later charged with Rape and two counts of Sexual Indecency with a Child.

On November 29, Arkansas State Police and Det. Ron Martin with the sheriff's office say they arrested Homer Gerald Dutton, 61, following an investigation into the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl and one of her relatives in 2009.

During interviews by Arkansas State Police in 2009, the girls told police Dutton inappropriately touched them and asked them to show their private parts to him. The girls were interviewed again on November 20th at the sheriff's office to re-affirm that the allegations were true.

Dutton is in the Poinsett County Jail on a $100,000 bond.

Do you focus on anything else in your life besides what race someone is? When was the last time you went out and had some fun? Go get laid and stop worrying about the racial mix of this country and who gets arrested more. Nobody cares.

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) A man accused of murdering an 83-year-old Craighead County woman pleaded guilty in court Monday.

According to the Craighead County Prosecuting Office, Ronnie Laster pleaded guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. As a condition of his plea, he must serve 100% of the 25 years.

The Craighead County Sheriff's Department says on December 29, 2010, they found Helen Johnson dead in her home off Hasbrook Road. Investigators say she died of multiple stab wounds.

A neighbor found Johnson murdered inside her home, after her granddaughter asked him to check on her. Her granddaughter called her every night around the same time, and on that night Johnson never answered.

On Saturday January 8, 2011, Craighead County Sheriff's deputies arrested Laster. Police say he rented a home from Johnson, just two doors down from her home.

LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP)- Attorneys for a man charged with capital murder in the death of a police officer in northeast Arkansas have asked a judge to reschedule his trial so they have more time to prepare for the case.

The state is seeking the death penalty against Jerry Lard, who prosecutors say killed Trumann Officer Jonathan Schmidt in April.

In court documents filed last week in Poinsett County, Lard's lawyers said they need more time to prepare for the capital case because his life is at stake. Lard's trial is currently slated to begin Feb. 13. His attorneys are asking that the trial be continued at least until July.

"We will be filing capital murder charges," said Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington. "We have the range of punishment that's allowed for capital murder and as the case progresses, then we'll make a final determination."

According to the affidavit, Lard is accused of shooting and killing Schmidt with a late Tuesday night, April 12, 2011. The affidavit states Schmidt initially made contact with the driver of a silver Hyundai Sonata at the entrance to Cottonwood Manor Apartments in Trumann. When Brian Elumbaugh, the driver, got out of his vehicle, he was handcuffed for a misdemeanor warrant.

Sergeant Corey Overstreet came to assist Schmidt during the traffic stop. Both in-car cameras were activated.

After Schmidt asked a female passenger to exit the vehicle, he learned Lard was wanted on a warrant. According to the affidavit, an investigator was told Lard said repeatedly before getting out of the car, "Today is the day."

Court documents suggest when Schmidt opened the car, Lard got out with a gun in his right hand and shot Schmidt at close range in the face.

Further into the court documents, surveillance video from Schmidt's car is said to have shown Lard pointing his weapon at Overstreet, and both exchanged gunfire. The video also is said to show Schmidt slumping near the right bumper of his patrol car. Documents suggest additional gunshots could be heard on the video.

Schmidt was pronounced dead at NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital in Jonesboro with several gunshot wounds.

Police said Schmidt died less than two hours after the shooting.

One of his attorneys, Jacqueline Wright, and prosecutor Scott Ellington declined to comment Monday.

Lard is being held in a nearby county jail.

A woman wanted by the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office since January is back behind bars.

On December 1, 2010, 36-year-old Emily Ferguson was placed on three-year probation for possession of a controlled substance (meth). In January of this year, Sheriff Jody Dotson says Ferguson stopped going to see her probation officer and moved without notifying authorities.

According to Sheriff Dotson, his office received several tips from concerned citizens that Ferguson was living in the Jonesboro area. The Craighead County Sheriff's Office and the Jonesboro Police Department were contacted. On Saturday, December 3, Ferguson was arrested and transported to the Lawrence County Jail.

Ferguson's bond was set at $10,000. She's due in Circuit Court on January 18.

DEXTER, MO (KFVS)- A mother rushed her 16-month-old girl to the hospital to learn the toddler managed to take prescription drugs. Now, the little girl's grandmother is in serious trouble, and mother Jantzen Wilson waits to learn if Kylie, who was taken by Child Services, will be returned to her.

"I was shocked," said Wilson. "I don't know what to think."

Still she feels like the whole ordeal was an accident.

"I always trust my mother with Kylie," said Wilson. "Now I just want Kylie back, I'll do whatever it takes."

Last Wedneday, Wilson's mother, Carla Lutes was watching Kylie as she normally does when Wilson goes to night class.

Wilson says her mother called two hours before she was suppsoed to pick up her daughter.

"She said 'I've taken my sleeping medicine. Do you want to come get her,'" said Wilson. Wilson says her mother told her the little girl was fine.

"I told her yes, we would come get her," said Wilson.

Wilson says a family friend went to get Kylie, and according to Wilson, as soon as he returned with her daughter, she knew something was wrong.

"I tried to wake her up," said Wilson. "She would not wake up no matter what I did. Her pupils were tiny, and her eyes were glassy."

Wilson says she put two and two together. She says she guessed Kylie had somehow swallowed some of her mother's pills.

"I was scared to death," said Wilson.

She rushed Kylie to a local hospital where doctors found pill fragments in the little girl's stomach. Immediately, they flew her to Barnes Children's Hospital in St. Louis.

"I just kept telling her to stay strong," said Wilson.

Doctors soon told Wilson, Kylie would be fine. But that's when the trouble started for her grandmother. Dexter Police searched her home and found pills that Lutes could not produce a prescription for and marijuana.

Lutes now faces charges of possession of controlled substance except 35 grams or less of marijuana and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. She currently does not face any charges relating to what happened to her granddaughter.

Dexter Police Chief Sammy Stone says this case should serve as a warning to everyone to make sure pills are kept away from children.

"If you've got children around, I don't care if they are 16 months or 16 years old, keep the pills where they can't get to them." said Chief Stone.

As for Wilson, she calls her mother her best friend. She says she would never hurt her granddaughter, and she feels like this was just an accident. She says they are a loving family, and now, they focus on convincing authorities to put Kylie back in her care.

"I'm a good mother. I love my daughter," said Wilson. "I have witnesses that will stand up and say that now, and that I will continue to be."

Wilson is due in court Tuesday to try and get Kylie back. What kind of pills Kylie took is still unkown as police continue to investigate. More charges are possible.

Two people wound up in the Izard County jail on DWI charges this past weekend following a traffic stop and a car crash.

It all started early Friday morning. According to the sheriff's department, deputies witnessed a Nancy Miller, 26, of Mount Pleasant weaving all over the road.

When she was stopped, investigators say Miller failed all of the standard field sobriety tests. A portable breath test was administered during the traffic stop, which yielded a reading of .14, said Sheriff Tate Lawrence.

Miller was transported to the Izard County Detention Facility where investigators say she refused a BAC test.

Miller was charged with driving while intoxicated, driving on a suspended license and refusal to submit to a chemical test. She was also arrested on an outstanding warrant from White County, according to the sheriff's department.

Meanwhile a one-car crash Sunday afternoon on State Highway 9 and Alpine Road sent one man to jail.

Deputies say when they arrived at the scene Keith M. Lawrence, 49, of Melbourne was unable to stand without assistance. They were unable to administer a field sobriety test because of his instability, deputies said.

According to the sheriff's department, Lawrence refused to submit to a BAC test while being booked into the Izard County Detention Facility.

Lawrence was charged with driving while intoxicated and refusing to submit to a chemical test.

Both Lawrence and Miller are free on bond.
