On Tuesday Family Council obtained documents from the Little Rock Police Department via the Freedom of Information Act indicating that law enforcement arrested abortion facility owner Natalie Tvedten on January 4.
According to the LRPD’s warrant and arrest report, Tvedten faces two counts of Assault in the First Degree, a Class A Misdemeanor. Under Arkansas law, a Class A misdemeanor is punishable by a fine of up to $2,500 and up to one year in jail.
According to the warrant and police report, on July 13, 2021, Ms. Tvedten allegedly tried to strike two pro-lifers — Ms. Denise Shewmake and Ms. Kimberly Puska — with her car while they were praying on the public easement outside Little Rock Family Planning Services — Arkansas’ only surgical abortion facility.
Ms. Tvedten is one of the owners of the abortion facility, according to court documents from 2020. The arrest report lists Tvedten’s address as 4 Office Park Drive in Little Rock, which matches the address of Little Rock Family Planning Services. Tvedten’s attorney did not immediately respond to an email requesting a comment.
