LITTLE ROCK - Former Republican state Sen. Gilbert Baker of Conway said Tuesday he believes he was fairly treated by Conway police officers and regrets his behavior toward them after he was arrested Friday following a traffic stop. According to a Conway police report released Tuesday, an officer stopped Baker's vehicle shortly after 8:15 p.m. after seeing it swerving. The officer noticed an odor of intoxicants on Baker, 59, and administered a sobriety test, which the report states Baker failed. Police transported Baker to the local police station, and on the way he became “verbally belligerent and emotional,” according to the report. At the police station, Baker refused a Breathalyzer test and was “confrontational, argumentative and yelling,” “uncooperative,” and “had a poor attitude,” the report states. Three tubes of blood were taken from Baker's arm to be tested for alcohol content. His attitude eventually changed and he apologized for his behavior, according to the report. The report lists the arrest offenses as refusing a Breathalyzer test and driving left of center. He was booked into the Faulkner County jail and later released. Baker, who served in the state Senate from 2001-13 and now teaches music at the University of Central Arkansas, told the Arkansas News Bureau on Tuesday the traffic stop happened about a mile from his home, as he was returning from Little Rock. “I'd had something to drink in Little Rock, but I just didn't feel like I was drunk by any stretch, and I felt like I'd passed the on-site sobriety test,” he said. “But there's no reason for me to have been belligerent with those police. They have a tough job, they're just trying to do they're job, and in about a half hour to 45 minutes I realized how wrong I was and apologized to them profusely.” Baker said he was “treated fairly and respectfully” by the officers. “I should not have been belligerent with them that first 30 minutes or so. I was wrong,” he said. Baker said he did yet know what he would do about any charges resulting from his arrest.
