Beat­ing with stick leads to LR ar­rest

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - ARKANSAS -

A 56-year-old man with a stick se­verely in­jured a man dur­ing an ar­gu­ment over a stolen bike in Lit­tle Rock, po­lice say.

Stephen Ship­ley of Lit­tle Rock was ar­rested around 11 a.m. Mon­day in the 6200 block of Colonel Glenn Road, ac­cord­ing to a Lit­tle Rock Po­lice Depart­ment re­port.

Au­thor­i­ties say Ship­ley con­fronted a 49-year-old man for steal­ing his bike and be­gan hit­ting him with a stick.

The man was taken to CHI St. Vin­cent In­fir­mary in Lit­tle Rock for in­juries that in­cluded a “se­vere lac­er­a­tion,” the re­port states.

Three wit­nesses said they saw Ship­ley hit­ting the 49-yearold mul­ti­ple times.

Ship­ley, who faces a charge of sec­ond-de­gree bat­tery, re­mained at the Pu­laski County jail as of Tues­day in lieu of $15,000 bond, records show.
