WEINER, Ark. (AP) - Two members of Weiner’s city council have been arrested in separate incidents this week.

An incident report says Poinsett County sheriff’s deputies responded to a domestic dispute at a home Tuesday. The report says 34-year-old council member Reagan Bodeker was arrested after her husband called police and said he was holding onto her to prevent her from retrieving a handgun and shooting him. Bodeker has been charged with terroristic threatening and third-degree domestic battery.

Authorities say 42-year-old council member Timothy Jessup Hewitt was arrested during a traffic stop Tuesday when officers found methamphetamine and prescription narcotics in his possession. Hewitt was charged with possession of less than 2 grams of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance.

Hewitt posted a $2,000 bond.

It was not immediately clear if Bodeker or Hewitt has an attorney.

Mayor Todd Bartholomew declined to comment on the incidents to the Jonesboro Sun.
