On June 12, De Queen Ptl Gilberto Elizondo was dispatched to Hwy. 41B in reference to a subject lying in the road near the railroad tracks.
Elizondo made contact with Chad Stueart, 46, of De Queen and observed numerous scratches all over his body and his knees were bloody. Stueart said that the electric fence was shocking him, but there was no fence around.
Stueart could not explain how he got on the railroad tracks and was sweating even though he was only in his underwear. Stueart was then placed into custody for public intoxication and transported to the Sevier County Jail. He was given a July 14 court date.
Case files have been turned over to the Ninth West Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for potential forthcoming criminal charges.
