Conway mayor invites half-staff flags for officer

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Conway's mayor has invited residents to fly their flags at half-staff to mark the death of a police officer.

Mayor Tab Townsell says flags can fly at half-staff through Wednesday to honor Conway Officer William McGary, who died Friday.

Police say McGary was in his patrol car with his emergency lights on to block a street because of the other accident when another vehicle crashed into the patrol car. The driver of the vehicle was arrested on various traffic charges.

The Log Cabin Democrat reports ( ) that McGary's funeral is set for Wednesday.
