A Hot Springs man was arrested Friday after allegedly sending numerous emails multiple times a day to various city employees even after being told to stop.

Victor Alan Langston, 66, who lists 195 Stanage Terrace as his address, was taken into custody at his home shortly after 2 p.m. Friday and charged with misdemeanor harassment, punishable by up to one year in jail. He was released on a $1,000 bond and is set to appear March 20 in Garland County District Court.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Langston allegedly sent an "exorbitant amount" of emails to multiple city employees over the last month to complain about the city's dog park and "other rantings." Some of the emails reportedly contained strong, abusive language that appeared to serve no legitimate purpose.

On Feb. 22, Hot Springs Police Chief Jason Stachey reportedly sent Langston a notice requesting he stop sending the emails directly to city employees and direct any further contact to his office or Chris Chapmond, the assistant police chief.

Langston allegedly continued to send emails directly to at least five city employees several times a day.

On March 3, Langston allegedly sent numerous emails only minutes apart to city officials and continued to do so up until the day a police report was filed on Wednesday. Approximately 248 emails from Langston have been recorded by the city's IS department.
