Julio's Co-Owner Arrested after Altercation with Jonesboro Police

FEBRUARY 27, 2007 - Posted at 7:29 a.m. CST, updated at 9:02 a.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - Downtown Jonesboro restaurant co-owner Julio Diaz is behind bars this morning, accused of disorderly conduct.  Diaz co-owns Julio's Restaurant, which has a private club liquor license, on Main Street in downtown Jonesboro.

Lt. Mark Mosier of the Jonesboro Police Department says Diaz used his vehicle to cut-off an off-duty police officer who was in a police cruiser on Union Avenue Monday evening.  Diaz then proceded to cause a scene in the middle of the street, according to police, yelling and cursing at the officer. 

Diaz was also cited for careless and prohibitive driving.

When he arrived at the police station, officers say Diaz became even more combative.  "He refused to post bond, despite a bail bondsman being here offering to bail him out and then began to talk to us in Spanish," said Mosier.

Officers say Diaz requested that K8 News be there for his booking.  That request was denied.  Diaz was then taken to the Craighead County Detention Center.  He is to appear before a District Court judge tomorrow afternoon.

Last night's incident comes less than 48 hours after a shooting incident that occured on the parking lot behind Diaz's restaurant in the early hours of Sunday morning, in which two people were wounded.  That incident is still under investigation by the JPD.
