NORTH LITTLE ROCK A Little Rock man is accused of forcing his longtime girlfriend from her home and then into his car, police records show.
Terry Lee Freeman, 33, was arrested Tuesday night on a charge of second-degree false imprisonment.
According to a North Little Rock Police Department arrest report, authorities were initially called shortly before 11 p.m. to a report of shots fired in the 1600 block of Sycamore Street. Upon arrival, a witness reported, Freeman had forced his girlfriend of five years, Consuela Sanders, into a car before driving it away.
Sanders called the witness a short time later and an officer answered.
" ... She advised [that] Freeman would not let her out of the vehicle and they were on the freeway headed to McCain," police wrote in the report. "Sanders was very upset and I was not able to understand most of what she said because she was crying and talking in a low tone."
Police say Freeman then took the phone and hung it up. About two minutes later, Sanders called back and reported they were near the Main Street viaduct.
Officers in that area found Sanders running west on 13th Street near Main Street a short time later. Freeman was taken into custody at his car, which was parked nearby.
According to the report, Freeman denied forcing Sanders into his vehicle. She told investigators he grabbed both of her arms and forced her from the home and then into the car.
Freeman is due in court Oct. 2. He remained in the Pulaski County jail Wednesday morning with bail set at $1,500.
