A Clark County man faces felony charges after allegedly shooting a deer in the city limits of Amity, according to an affidavit filed recently in the Clark County Circuit Clerk’s office.
Donnie Eugene Bowser, 47, of 121 E. Thompson St., Amity, was arrested Tuesday, Dec. 13, for illegal possession of a firearm.
According to the affidavit, Clark County Sheriff’s Office criminal investigators were notified on Wednesday, Nov. 16, of an apparent incident that had happened in the city of Amity “concerning a felon in possession of a firearm.”
The Amity Police Department and an Arkansas Game and Fish Commission officer responded to 525 Marvin Doster Road, where it was reported that someone had shot a deer inside the city limits, the affidavit says.
According to the affidavit, authorities recovered a .50 caliber muzzleloader from Bowser.
The affidavit says Bowser told Sgt. Bobby Barger of the AGFC that he had used the gun to kill a deer, and produced the firearm he allegedly used.
Bowser is a felon with a previous conviction from Little Rock, according to the affidavit.
If convicted for possessing the firearm, Bowser could face up to six years in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
