The city of North Little Rock pushing to close Motel 6


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV)- The city of North Little Rock along with the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney Larry Jegley filed a lawsuit on Thursday to shut down Motel 6.

After a five year investigation and hundreds of reports of criminal activity the city said they have had enough.

"We have a list of known arrests and reports that have happened at that one location," said assistant prosecuting attorney Paula Juels Jones. "We think they've become a legal nuisance and we're taking action to try to abate that nuisance," said Jones.

During the five year investigation there have been reports of 27 drug crimes, one aggravated robbery, three domestic batteries, two aggravated assaults and 33 cases of public intoxication.
