BENTONVILLE — Police arrested a Centerton man in connection with a fatal car crash.

Mitchell Cameron Ramsey, 23, was being held Tuesday in the Benton County Jail with no bond set. Ramsey was arrested in connection with negligent homicide, reckless driving, driving on a suspended license and failure to stop at a stop sign.

Rogers police obtained a warrant for Ramsey’s arrest last week.

Police were called at 4:05 p.m. Sept. 28 to a crash involving three vehicles at North 13th and West Persimmon streets, according to court documents.

Donald Davis, a Rogers police officer, reported he could smell alcohol on Ramsey’s breath and he noticed Ramsey’s speech was slurred, according to a probable cause affidavit.

A paramedic treating Ramsey noted he appeared intoxicated, according to the affidavit.

William Dudzieski, the driver of one of the other cars, died at Northwest Medical Center-Bentonville.

Brandon Henson, the driver of the third vehicle, told police he was stopped on North 13th Street when he saw Ramsey’s car hit Dudzieski’s. Henson said Ramsey didn’t stop at the stop sign, according to court documents.

Ramsey told police he didn’t remember anything about the accident and only remembered leaving JJ’s Bar & Grill, according to the affidavit.

Police obtained a blood sample from Ramsey, according to court documents, which indicated a blood alcohol content of 0.20. The legal limit in Arkansas is 0.08.

Ramsey’s arraignment is scheduled for 8 a.m. Jan. 2 in Circuit Judge Robin Green’s court.
