Law enforcement and people from across Northwest Arkansas gathered in Bentonville early Sunday morning for a procession in honor of fallen Pea Ridge Police Officer Kevin Apple.
Officer Apple and fellow Officer Brian Stamps were trying to stop a car being chased by Rogers Police at a gas station in Pea Ridge. The car hit the officers’ patrol car, then tried to get away. That’s when the driver hit Officer Apple.
Benton County Prosecuting Attorney Nathan Smith says two people have been arrested and are facing multiple charges related to the incident.
Sunday morning, supporters stood by as his body was taken from the Benton County Coroner’s office to the State Crime Lab in Little Rock.
