7:05 p.m.—Mark Anthony Grubb, a 49-year-old man, was arrested and cited for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest during the A-State football game Thursday.

Officer Andy Thrasher was on duty at the game when he observed Grubb begin to argue with an employee who was taking tickets at the top of the stands.

Grubb argued that his seats were not in the section the employee was referring him to.

Officer Thrasher advised Grubb not to argue with the employees and asked him to step back up to the concourse to talk with him. Grubb refused to comply.

Thrasher then asked for his identification for being disorderly.

According to the report, Grubb flipped out his ID that was in his wallet by shoving it toward the officer’s face.

Thrasher took the ID out, and other items in Grubb’s wallet fell to the ground. Grubb told Thrasher to “pick his s--- up.”

At that time Officer Thrasher asked him to place his hands behind his back.

Grubb responded, “No you are not,” and began to resist arrest.

Officers were able to handcuff the man, and Grubb was escorted out.

Grubb said there would be  a “monstrous” problem if the officers did not remove the cuffs. Grubb also threatened Officer Thrasher by saying he would have his lawyer and Mayor Harold Perrin come down to the game to deal with him.

Grubb’s friend, who was nearby, said that it would be Officer Thrasher’s last day as a police officer.

8:30 p.m.—A report of theft was taken after an 18-year-old female student realized she had left her belongings in the basket of a LimeBike after parking it.

The student told Officer Sean Calaway that she parked the LimeBike at Northpark Quads Building 4 around 7 p.m.

Later, at about 8:30 p.m., she went back outside and noticed the bike was gone.

At that time, she realized her belongings were all left in the basket of the bike and were now also gone.

The student is missing her keys, A-State ID, debit and credit cards, and her Arkansas driver’s license.

According to the report, she attempted to locate the bike using the LimeBike app on her phone but was unsuccessful.

1:27 a.m.—Officer Sean Calaway was on patrol after 1 a.m. when he stopped a vehicle on Johnson Avenue for driving without headlights.

Calaway asked the driver, 18-year-old Paige Bowser, why she was driving the vehicle without lights.

Bowser explained that the vehicle belonged to one of the passengers, 19-year-old Allison Evans, but she was driving because all the other passengers had been drinking.

Calaway asked for her driver’s license, but Bowser stated she didn’t have one.

He then asked Evans for proof of insurance, and Evans said that she would try to look for it on her phone.

At this point, Calaway detected the smell of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle and asked if there was anything in the car.

The four girls all denied having any marijuana with them or having smoked any that night.

Bowser then signed a consent-to-search form, and officers searched the vehicle for contraband.

Officers found a glass jar with marijuana residue and marijuana shake in the floorboard of the back seat.

There was also a marijuana grinder in the center console. Evans admitted that the grinder was hers.

Evans was then cited and released for possessing an instrument of a crime and was referred to Student Conduct for a drug violation.

Bowser was cited for not having a driver’s license and no proof of insurance.

All four students were referred for an alcohol violation.
