ACDC building forced to foreclose


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A foreclosure has forced the Argenta Community Development Corporation out of the same district it's been working to improve.

Executive Director Hannah Vogler with the ACDC says they chose to stop making payments for the main street building. She says they were throwing money away after investing $800,000 into the building that they think is worth less than that.

Nathan Hamilton with the city of North Little Rock says this foreclosure does not reflect how the ACDC does business.

"What you see behind me is thanks to them. A lot of hard work from the city council, the mayor and we do hope they really work through these financial issues," said Hamilton.

The city has donated a small space for now that the ACDC will use.


License required for yoga training schools


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Arkansas schools that train yoga teachers will soon have to be licensed by the state Board of Private Career Education.

The Arkansas Board of Private Career Education oversees private, postsecondary career schools for fields, such as dental assistants, bail bonds and tattoo piercing.

The board's director, Brenda Germann, says that yoga teacher-training schools in Arkansas will now be included in that licensing procedure.

"I can tell you from my own experience and those of us who had a long experience in teaching you don't even know what you don't know."

Stacey Faught owns Blue Yoga Nyla in North Little Rock and is also an associate director for a yoga training school. She says the regulations are necessary in an industry that's become so popular.

Toxicology report released in I-440 accident from March

Toxicology report released in I-440 accident from March

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(KTHV)- An update became available on Thursday about a deadly 18-wheeler accident that happened on I-440 in March.

Police say the accident was caused by the driver of a Chevy Impala who reversed down the interstate.

At the request of a THV viewer, we checked on this case and made contact with the family of Terry Harrell, the truck driver who died in that fiery crash.

The family revealed that the toxicology report for the driver of that Chevy Impala indicates that she was nearly 3-times the legal limit for alcohol, tested positive for marijuana and had Xanax in her system at the time of the crash.

THV was unable to get an update from prosecutors on possible charges.

However, the family of Terry Harrell says that a request has been made to go forward with manslaughter charges against the driver who reversed down the interstate.

Review underway on how inmate escaped handcuffs to get away

Review underway on how inmate escaped handcuffs to get away


PULASKI COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - Law enforcement continue to search for an inmate who slipped out of his handcuffs on Monday and took off running. Anael Castro was being held on rape charges. Since his escape, many people still have questions about how it happened.

The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office is reviewing what happened. They are looking to see if a mistake led to Castro's escape or if they need to change they way they transport inmates. At this time, no changes have been made, but deputies say diligence has skyrocketed.

"There is always going to be that one guy that is constantly thinking about doing it," said Lieutenant Carl Minden with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office.

Minden says deputies cuffed Anael Castro hands in the front. They linked his handcuffs to a long chain with other inmates and did not shackle his legs.
