LITTLE ROCK - Governor Mike Beebe today announced his intent to grant six pardons. An additional 25 clemency requests were denied and 30 had no action taken upon them. These include requests from both inmates and non-inmates.

The six applicants intended for pardons have completed all jail time, fulfilled all parole-and-probationary requirements and paid all fines related to their sentences. There is a 30-day waiting period to receive public feedback on the pardons before final action is taken.

Governor Beebe intends to grant pardons to the following people:

John Ford (Newport): Breaking or Entering, Theft of Property
This notice is issued based on the date of conviction (1981 - Jackson County), the fact that all terms of the applicant's sentence have been completed and there have been no further criminal-law violations. There are no law-enforcement objections to the application.

GARLAND COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - A sheriff's deputy was injured when his vehicle was struck by an alleged drunk driver.

Authorities say on-duty deputy Clayton Green in Garland Co., was traveling eastbound on Airport Road around 4:00 a.m. on Sunday when a westbound Ford pickup truck driven by Zachary Glisson, 27, was attempting to turn onto Adcock Road.

According to authorities, Deputy Green was unable to stop and Glisson's truck collided into his vehicle.

Glisson's truck then flipped, coming to rest on the driver's side near the close-by EZ Mart. The pickup and the deputy's vehicle each sustained around $8,000 in damages.

LifeNet responded to both men, who initially declined treatment. Later, Deputy Green went to St. Joseph's for treatment of a minor injury to his left forearm, which was apparently caused by the airbag deploying.

Authorities say Glisson appeared to be impaired and his blood/alcohol content was measured at .08 percent.
