April 9

Officer Keith Gilliam responded to a fire alarm from room 511 in Arkansas Hall. Inside the room he saw smoke hanging in the air and a George Foreman grill with three hamburger patties next to it.

The resident of the room said he had cooked hamburgers before without incident. The building was cleared for re-entry after the Jonesboro Fire Department arrived on scene.

April 10

While Officer Tracy Simpson was eating lunch in Akansa Dining Hall, she saw Elizabeth Daniels enter the cafeteria without swiping her ID card at the register.

After observing Daniels get a plate of food from the grill, Simpson approached her and inquired as to the location of her ID card. Simpson informed Daniels that eating without paying for her food would be considered stealing.

Daniels voluntarily returned to her room to retrieve the card. She was issued university referrals for failure to comply and theft.

April 11

Officer Daniel Bradway was patrolling the area along Honors Road at 4:17 a.m. when he heard a vehicle spinning its tires and watched as a truck sped off from the Kappa Alpha house. Bradway pulled over the driver, who immediately confessed to driving without a license. The driver of the truck, Hunter Milton, said he had been suspended for a DWI a few days prior.

After Milton failed several field sobriety tests, Bradway arrested him for driving while intoxicated and driving on a suspended or revoked license. Milton was taken to the Craighead County Sheriff’s Office.

April 12

Desmond Burnside reported the vandalism of his 2001 Pontiac Grand American. Officer Billy Branch responded, and Burnside showed the officer what appeared to be sugar around the gas hose line area.

Burnside said he was not having any problems with anyone at that time, and did not know why anyone would want to damage his vehicle.
