Scammer poses as Pulaski Co. sheriff's deputy


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office warns of a scammer posing as one of their employees.

Lt. Carl Minden said someone claiming to be "Lt. Ron Davis" with the Sheriff's Office contacted someone in the county and said he had two outstanding warrants and if he didn't pay $580 he would be arrested.

The victim told the scammer he didn't have the money, but the scammer told him he would provide him with a card he can put the money on to take care of the issue.

The victim as well as a sheriff's deputy called the number of "Lt. Ron Davis" and there was a message claiming they had reached the Sheriff's Office.

Minden says there is no one by the name of Lt. Ron Davis that works with the Sheriff's Office.

ROLAND, Ark.(KTHV)- Mario Vs. Minecraft is a YouTube video gone viral. The two masterminds behind it are young filmmakers from central Arkansas.

Andrew McMurry and his cousin Matthew are making a name for themselves through their love for video games and film.

With close to three million hits in less than two weeks, the boys are making name for themselves through the internet.

Andrew says the video just took off.

"People seeing the video and they just click share to Facebook and all their friends see it."

Matthew says the video puts Nintendo's Mario up against a Minecraft gamer in the woods of Pulaski County.

"A lot of people have conversations like who would win in a fight? Would Mario win or this guy win? We've heard a lot of arguments like that before, so we thought, what if we just did something like that."
