Man on task force list faces new allegations

One of the eight people singled out for special attention by the Pine Bluff Police Violent Crime Task Force was in court Friday morning, one day after he was to have attended a meeting conducted by the task force.

Calvin Honorable, 24, was arrested several hours before the 6 p.m. meeting and was accused of firing shots at a car in the Shady Grove area Tuesday.

Prosecuting Attorney S. Kyle Hunter said the alleged victim was on Rose Street when she located Honorable, who was her boyfriend and the two argued because he was at the house of another female.

According to a probable cause affidavit from Detective Larry Gailey, Honorable was driving a car that the alleged victim had bought for him, and he allegedly pulled out a gun and fired several shots at her vehicle before leaving the scene.

Hunter said Honorable, who is on parole, had been convicted of several previous felonies and according to a list prepared by the task force, his prior convictions included committing a terroristic act, aggravated assault, felony domestic battery, and drug related offenses. Hunter also said Honorable had been notified that he was on the task force list prior to committing the alleged acts.

At Hunter’s request, Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $25,000 cash only bond for Honorable after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with being a felon in possession of a firearm and with committing a terroristic act.

Even though Judge Kearney set a bond on the new allegations, he told Honorable he would not be able to post that bond because the Arkansas Department of Corrections had issued a parole hold on him, and he would be held without bond until a hearing to determine if he should go back to prison to complete his sentence.

The bond amount was the same as the one that was set for Ben Creggett, 37, who was on the first list of names from the Violent Crimes Task Force in January. Creggett was arrested for felony domestic battery.
