JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police arrested a man on suspicion of trespassing after he made himself comfortable in someone else’s home.

Officers responding to a call of a possible burglary in the 1000-block of Haltom Street Tuesday morning discovered the back door of a house kicked in and a bicycle laying beside the door.

When police went in the back of the house to clear it, 48-year-old Roy Glenn Graves ran out the front door.

Officer Joshua Beasley, who was waiting in front of the house, pulled out his Taser and ordered Graves to stop. When he didn’t, Beasley chased after him and took him to the ground.

Graves told Beasley he did not own or rent the house but said he had been sleeping there, the incident report stated.

Officers contacted the homeowner who confirmed the house was vacant and that Graves had no business being there.

Beasley arrested Graves and took him to the Craighead County Detention Center where he was charged with criminal trespass; criminal mischief; fleeing; theft $1,000 or less-from building; nonpayment of fines; and out of town warrants.
