Arrest Made in North Little Rock After High-Speed Chase

North Little Rock, Arkansas – Matthew Loyd, a 33-year-old resident of Cabot, was apprehended by the authorities on Friday night following a high-speed chase that spanned multiple streets. Loyd is now facing several criminal charges, including fleeing the scene, second-degree battery, first-degree criminal mischief, and resisting arrest.

The chase ensued after a concerned woman flagged down a police officer on East Broadway around 8:45 p.m., reporting that she was being followed by a silver sedan. Acting promptly, the officer started pursuing the suspicious vehicle. After observing that Loyd, the driver, was not wearing a seat belt, the officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop on North Clover Street.

However, Loyd refused to comply and instead drove through a field, ultimately colliding with the police car while attempting to drive over a fence. Undeterred, Loyd continued to evade the police, leading them on a dangerous chase through various streets. Eventually, the suspect’s vehicle gave out on the ramp from U.S. 165 to westbound Interstate 440, forcing Loyd to come to a halt.

An intense altercation ensued when officers tried to apprehend Loyd, who was eventually pulled out of the car through the window and taken into custody. Currently, Loyd is being held without bail in the Pulaski County jail as investigations continue.

The North Little Rock Police Department is committed to ensuring the safety of its residents and will thoroughly investigate this incident to bring justice to the victims and hold the perpetrators accountable.
