FAULKNER COUNTY, AR – Police have arrested a man who reportedly attempted to assault officers after they arrived on the scene of a mobile home fire.
According to Major Andy Shock of the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Department, William E. Bryant accidentally set his mobile home on fire while trying to burn some brush. When deputies responded to the blaze, Bryant allegedly took a swing at one of them then ran into the burning home.
Deputies say they had to go into the burning home to remove Bryant, who refused to get off the floor after being cuffed and had to be carried out. Bryant was treated for burns at the scene but police say he refused any other medical attention, and was taken to the Faulkner County Detention Center.
