A Quitman woman was arrested and a Conway man airlifted to a Little Rock hospital after a hit-and-run crash Thursday night.Mullikin didn’t stop after the accident, according to the reports. Passers-by saw Farthing laying at the side of the road and blocked traffic with their vehicle until police and rescue workers arrived.Minutes after the crash, a Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office deputy working an unrelated traffic stop on Highway 65 was approached by a motorist who said she’d seen a vehicle heading north on Highway 65 turn down Pickles Gap Road with what looked like a motorcycle pinned underneath it.
The deputy located what was left of the scooter on Pickles Gap Road. Mullikin had dragged it under her vehicle for several thousand feet.Hilarious, Deidre was hiding in a field, calling a friend (who later calls SO and reports her) on her cell, they found her, by the light of her cell phone!Charles Rummel also called FCSO Thursday night to say that an unfamiliar, dark-colored car had pulled into the driveway of his Brian Hill Road residence, several miles from the crash site, with damage to the front passenger’s side.
“I was out taking care of my dog when this car came down the road and pulled into my driveway,” Rummel said Friday. “I didn’t see anybody get out, but later I saw a cell phone or something lighting up out in the woods and I called the law. There were police out here real fast.”

She was charged with class-D felony failure to stop after an accident with injury and the misdemeanor offenses of second-offense DWI and careless or prohibited driving. She was released Friday on a $4,235 bond and set a pretrial date of Sept. 17.
The officer also noted in his report that he requested another officer interview her, because she “didn’t like me from a previous arrest.”
This officer had arrested Mullikin before dawn on July 7 for public intoxication after she walked away from an altercation with a group of friends, according to a report of this incident. In the altercation, the report states, she slapped a friend who had taken her keys because he felt she was too intoxicated to drive.
I believe the fella that took this picture needs to reset his dates!
I sincerely appreciate the fact that John Farthing (the 2nd) friends have made a website to keep everyone up to date on his progress, that's here: http://jfarthing.funky-penguin.com/
I do wish that John had worn a better helmet!
Farthing II's helmet on the side of the road....
