Happy 105th birthday to Georgia Williams!

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A very, very happy birthday to Miss Georgia Williams here in Little Rock. Her friends at First Baptist Church threw a 105th birthday party Sunday.       

“My God to have so many friends...people that love me...but don't wait until I get to be 106,” she said.

Born in 1909 in Mississippi, she lived most of her life here in Arkansas. Miss Williams worked for many years as a home care worker and for almost as long - remained active in local senior centers where she taught ceramics. The church says she's still teaching lessons today.

Arby's employees held at gunpoint for more than 2 hours


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Two teenagers are facing a multitude of charges after they held the employees of an Arby's restaurant at gunpoint for more than two hours, according to the Little Rock Police Department (LRPD).

Lt. Sidney Allen said the two went into the Arby's at 15501 Chenal Parkway around 12:32 a.m. on August 30 and robbed the store at gunpoint. Police reports show that one of the teens sexually assaulted a woman in the restroom and shot at the store manager, demanding he open the safe.

Allen said the teens fled in a green, Chevrolet Caprice and later collided with another vehicle in the 13000 block of Chenal Parkway; the Caprice was apparently traveling the wrong way against traffic. Police did not say if the driver of the second vehicle was injured but did say that the car was turned on its side and the driver was trapped.

Toxicology report released in I-440 accident from March

Toxicology report released in I-440 accident from March

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(KTHV)- An update became available on Thursday about a deadly 18-wheeler accident that happened on I-440 in March.

Police say the accident was caused by the driver of a Chevy Impala who reversed down the interstate.

At the request of a THV viewer, we checked on this case and made contact with the family of Terry Harrell, the truck driver who died in that fiery crash.

The family revealed that the toxicology report for the driver of that Chevy Impala indicates that she was nearly 3-times the legal limit for alcohol, tested positive for marijuana and had Xanax in her system at the time of the crash.

THV was unable to get an update from prosecutors on possible charges.

However, the family of Terry Harrell says that a request has been made to go forward with manslaughter charges against the driver who reversed down the interstate.
