ASP investigating officer-involved shooting by members of the Cabot Police Department
Earlier today, the Cabot Police Department (CPD) asked Arkansas State Police's Criminal Investigation Division to investigate an officer-involved shooting.
On Wednesday, June 28, 2023, at approximately 12:11 a.m., CPD was dispatched to Cabot Emergency Hospital after receiving a call that Douglas Nutter, 51, was involved in an altercation there.
According to reports from officers, Nutter failed to comply with officer commands to stop, driving to a residence on Shady Lane in Lonoke County, where he again failed to comply with orders. During the encounter, CPD officers fired their services weapons, striking Nutter in the hand.
Nutter was taken into custody and transported to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in Little Rock for non-life threatening injures to his right hand.
Nutter was later released from UAMS and transported to Cabot Police Department. He will be charged with two counts of Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Felony Fleeing and Reckless Driving.
