A reported disturbance Sunday on East Harding Avenue resulted in the arrest of a man who was reportedly driving a stolen car.

Zachary Jones, 20, of Little Rock, was taken into custody at 2100 E. Harding Ave. after the reported disturbance involving an intoxicated person.

During a court hearing Monday, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said Jones walked up to police while they were talking to the other person and told officers he had brought that person to Pine Bluff from Little Rock and would take them back.

Detective Larry Gailey reported that when Jones went to get the vehicle he had arrived in, police ran the license plate number and learned that it had been reported stolen Sept. 15.

Jones reportedly said that a woman had given him the keys to the car after the two had been at a nightclub together and asked him to drive her home, but after he got the car, said the woman had been arrested for public intoxication.

Gailey reported that he contacted the registered owner of the vehicle in Benton on Sunday and she said she was getting into her car Saturday when she was knocked down and her purse, keys and vehicle were taken.

Jefferson County District Judge John Kearney set a $25,000 bond for Jones after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with theft by receiving.

Kearney appointed the Public Defenderís Office to represent Jones and told him to come back to court Oct. 29.
