“Shocking and sickening” images for the city’s mayor

“Like many of you, I was shocked and sickened by what I saw,” said Gary Baxter, the mayor of Mulberry. According to local media, the victim’s name is Randall Worcester. He was wanted for a verbal assault at a gas station and allegedly threatened the police.

I have spoken with Col. Bill Bryant of the Arkansas State Police and the local arrest incident in Crawford County will be investigated pursuant to the video evidence and the request of the prosecuting attorney.
