Little Rock police reviewing John Walker arrest



A Little Rock police spokesman said the department was reviewing yesterday’s arrest of state Rep. John Walker and his legal colleague Omavi Kushukuru for obstruction of governmental operations.

Police who’d made a traffic stop that eventually led to the arrest of two men on warrants said the two men disobeyed police orders to move away from the car of the men arrested. Walker was filming the officers and exchanged words with them.

The spokesman said the result of that review might be completed this afternoon.

I’ve been unable to get Walker on the phone for his account of the incident.
