Cutting doughnuts, not pizzas, in park lands delivery driver in jail

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police cited a pizza delivery driver for cutting doughnuts, not pies, in a city park.

Just before 5:30 a.m. Monday, Officer Kiandra McCain found a blue Chrysler Sebring, covered in mud, stuck in the middle of Stricklin Park, 1111 Medallion.

The driver, 23-year-old Dylan Glenn Mullins of Brookland, told her he was "trying to make a circle to get out of the park" when he got stuck. Mullins, who told McCain he was a pizza delivery driver for a local business, said he was waiting for a co-worker to help him.

"I observed where Mullins' vehicle had made deep holes—"ruts"—in the ground throughout the park," McCain stated in her report. She estimated the damage at $200.

One man who lives in the neighborhood said he has never seen damage done at the park.

"People don't care about public parks, or people don't care about private property nowadays.  There's no respect, there's simply no respect and this is nonsense in my opinion," said James Moore.  "Our grand kids come down here a couple of times a week during the pretty weather and play.  It's a very, very nice park, the city keeps up with it very well.  The upkeep is tremendous."

She ran his information through dispatch and, upon discovering that Mullins had a warrant through the Craighead County Sheriff's Office, arrested him.

McCain took Mullins to the Craighead County Detention Center and cited him with criminal mischief. She turned him over to a county officer for the warrant. According to the CCSO inmate roster, Mullins is also charged with failure to appear-felony.

Tow Tyme towing service pulled Mullins' vehicle from the scene.
