A teen who was arrested in connection with a "hill-jumping accident" earlier this month has since had his bond revoked after he received two additional traffic citations Thursday night.
Charles K. Sadler, 18, of Bryant was allegedly traveling 94 mph in a 70 mph zone on Interstate 30 when he was pulled over near mile marker 117. Sadler received a citation for speeding and reckless driving, said Shea Meeler, Saline County Deputy Prosecutor.
Because he was the driver in the "hill-jumping accident," he was charged with manslaughter but was released on a $10,000 sheriff's bond.
Gary Garner, a teacher in the Benton School District, has announced his bid for the Ward 3, Position 1 seat on the Benton City Council.
Garner said he "chose Benton to raise my family because I believe it takes a community to raise a family, and this community has made that a great experience.
"I have two sons that have graduated from Benton High school and my other son is currently a senior there," he said. "It has been rewarding to see them grow and mature at our top-notch school district that has always had great test scores."
Marcus Dorsey who was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run accident at Alcoa Exchange in Bryant, will be charged with murder. The victim in the accident died at approximately 10:39 a.m. Friday.
Dorsey allegedly struck Heather Baker, 20, of Benton who was walking toward Target. The victim is not related to Dorsey.
During a bond hearing Friday morning, Judge Mike Robinson set Dorsey's bond at $1 million.
"The only reason I'm going to give you a bond is because the state says I have to," Robinson said.
