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 (http://is.gd/FPCuRl ) that McGary's funeral is set for Wednesday.
