Cabot police officer goes beyond the call of duty after traffic stop


CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - Day in and day out Patrol Officer Matthew Mulligan makes it his mission to protect and serve the city of Cabot.

He begins, "I pulled up behind her at a stoplight." But on this particular day, the story could have ended at the routine traffic stop, instead it turned into a story of generosity. "I didn't really have a choice for what I ended up doing, citing her," Officer Mulligan adds.

Eilene Garcia had been pulled over and cited for broken brake lights, expired tags and an expired driver's license. The first thing that went through her head, jokingly, she says, "Oh, I can't say that." She can laugh about it now, but that day was no joking matter. Her car, unfortunately had to be towed. Garcia says, "I wasn't thrilled. I knew that was going to cost some money, and it did."

Cabot neighborhood wants to eliminate speeding


CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - A Cabot neighborhood is tired of seeing drivers speed through their residential streets.

"The sounds, the kids screaming, the big bang." It all happened within a matter of seconds, but the memory may last a lifetime. "Frightening experience. It's not one I'm going to forget."

Sharron White was sitting in her home in the Shiloh subdivision when chaos happened just feet away from her front door.

She explained, "I heard yelling and screaming and I heard a screeching and a loud bang and I saw something fly pass my window."

Afraid the children next door had been hit, White ran outside, fortunately to only find her mailbox knocked down and broken into dozens of pieces. She said, "If that mailbox had not caught that car it could have come down into my front door."

Suspect dead after shootout with police


CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - A man is dead after a routine warrant arrest turned into a shootout with police Tuesday night.

According to the Department of Community Correction, it started when the suspect fired from inside the police car.

"You don't see stuff like this happening around here," said witness and neighbor, Kathy Ballard, "everyone around here heard the shots, everyone was running everywhere, it was chaotic."

According to Ballard, the first shot came from inside the patrol car, breaking through the side window.

"You can see the gun and his arm and a little bit of his body outside the window and he just open fires on the police officers," said Ballard.

ADCC says 35-year-old Jonathan Macintosh fired at two of their officers.

The officers returned fire until Macintosh stopped.
