Police altercation lands LR man in jail

North Little Rock police arrested a 23-year-old man Sunday after he interrupted officers while they were trying to question suspects and then video-recorded the officers, according to an arrest report.

Police said they were speaking with subjects who had been removed from a vehicle on West 16th Street for playing loud music.

The arrest report says Yohanee Nunn approached and began asking questions, "which prevented officers on scene from gaining pertinent information needed for detainment."

When Nunn was told to walk away, he refused and began to video-record the officers, according to the arrest report. After refusing multiple commands to leave, Nunn was arrested about 4:32 p.m., police said.

The arrest report lists Nunn's place of residence as Little Rock.
