An Arkadelphia man has been charged for an altercation outside of Peake Elementary School.
While working school traffic on March 29, Arkadelphia Police Department Cpl. Joseph Paull encountered a silver vehicle pull up in the eastbound lane next to his car.
Upon rolling down his window, Paull promptly heard a slew of swearing from the driver. The corporal responded by telling the suspect, whom he knew to be Bobby Macon, to quit blocking the traffic.
Paull then walked into traffic and opened Macon’s driver door and ordered him to park. Macon continued cursing as Paull attempted to reach across him and put the vehicle in park. Macon then hit the corporal’s head and shoulders multiple times, damaging some of his radio equipment in the process.
During the process, Paull was dragged by the vehicle for 20 feet.
Two people who were dropping off children observed the incident and assisted in restraining the defendant.
Shortly thereafter, the APD confirmed an incident had occurred but specific details were not shared.
Macon faces up to six years in prison if convicted of second-degree battery.
