Bryant native Josh Farmer has announced his candidacy for Bryant city attorney.

A Jacksonville man was arrested Wednesday night after being involved in a high-speed pursuit with a Benton police officer.
Brian Keith Scroggins, 31, allegedly was traveling recklessly on Interstate 30. When a Benton police officer tried to stop the vehicle, Scroggins continued to travel at a high rate of speed.
Scroggins eventually traveled onto U.S. 70, venturing into oncoming traffic, according to the police report.
