A suspect faces a felony terroristic threatening charge along with a list of other charges after a report says he wrecked a stolen vehicle, left the scene, then fled from officers and resisted arrest before finally being taken into custody.

It happened on October 30. Initially, at about 2:27 AM, a suspect stole a vehicle at the 2800-block of Fair Park Boulevard. Most of the report is masked due to investigative status but a second report continues events from there.

The suspect wrecked at the 3900-block of S. Caraway Road. Police responded to the report of a wrecked vehicle with a male leaving the scene with a gun in his hand.

The suspect didn’t cooperate according to the police, as an expended taser cartridge was reported along with resisting arrest and obstructing justice charges. However, Adrian Darius Riley, 19, of Jonesboro, was arrested.

On top of the charges already mentioned, he faces charges for felony theft, leaving the scene of an accident, carless driving, and an out of town warrant. He was booked at 3:59 AM into Craighead County Detention Center and remains there as of this publication.

It wasn’t clear what prompted the incident, if anything, but the suspects could face felony charges including felony terroristic threatening.
