Roxanne Yvonne Best

Arrested in Pulaski County, AR on October 3, 2013

A Jacksonville woman set to be arraigned in North Little Rock District Court was arrested on new charges after she complained the judge was moving too slowly and refused to quiet down, authorities said.

Roxanne Best, 28, was on the arraignment docket Thursday morning on charges of failure to pay and violating probation, court staff said.

Best was asked to wait in the hallway with her baby, but she instead asked a woman she didn't know to watch the child and returned to the courtroom, according to a North Little Rock Police Department report.

Back inside, she complained the fill-in judge handling the day's cases was "[too] slow" and she kept "getting louder" despite requests for her to quiet down, the report said.

"Finally officers placed Ms. Best in custody," officers wrote in the report.

The report lists charges of disorderly conduct and public intoxication.

Best remained in the Pulaski County jail Friday morning with bail set at $300.

One more question comes to mind, how early do you have to get up in order to be drunk when you arrive in court at 9:00 AM?

She was drunk with her baby? I hope Social Services investigates how this child is being treated. This sounds like another child who needs to be taken away and raised in a good home. We wonder where all the 15 year thugs come from? This baby will be a thug in 15 years if somebody does not take him away now. The same is true about the 4 year old beaten with a belt and the two kids who were walking down the middle of the street in the middle of the night with their drunk mother. Somebody needs to save these kids!

Populist... I totally agree with you!!! And the person that needs to be doing the saving in these cases should be the sperm donor.

Roxanne Best, prototypical Obama voter and natural product of failed liberal social policies. Odds are Roxanne has a few more kids because in the culture of dependence and to entitlement addicts children without fathers are perceived as a means to another government check. Failed liberal social polices created and continued by liberal demorats. How's that Hope and Change working for all you Obama voters now?

Obama did not create the welfare culture, and he goes about preaching against it. Yes, we need to go to a more workfare concept, and we need to wean people off welfare. It is important to catch them when they are young, keep them out of unfit homes, and make sure that they have access to great education.

Wow, populist and I agree on something.
Hawgfan, I was married to my sperm donor. He spent more time with other women and their children than he did with me and our son. Good luck with getting the sperm donors to save their children.
Oh, and for the record, I rescued my son from an abusive whipping by his father. So I don't condone abuse. Discipline yes, abuse no.

Hey Populist - Of course Obama didn't create the welfare culture because it was "created" before he was born. He only continues and basks in its destructiveness. Your statement that he preaches against it is laughable considering he jammed down America's throat the greatest and most destructive law EVER designed to promote the welfare culture, that law being Obamacare. What we need are politicians who have the backbone to curtail liberal social programs that enslave normal people to a government check. In todays' world, those folks would be called Republicans.
Roxanne Best, poster child for failed liberal social policies and the governance of BH Obama.
