ABC Director Bud Roberts made an appearance on THV11 and tried to claim credit for a Benton police undercover operation that found four area retailers that sold alcohol to a minor.

The Benton Police Department recently carried out an undercover operation that resulted in the issuance of four citations to Benton area businesses for selling alcohol to a minor.

Two of the violators were Applebee's and RibCrib.  Applebee's claimed that their server misread the ID and that the server was fired.  RibCrib's only comment was that it has happened before. No record of a recent violation was found on the ABC's website.

ABC Director Bud Roberts rushed home to Benton to make an appearance on KTHV.

Bud started off the interview stating that "our legislators make good laws and we should obey them". Funny that Bud only wants to obey some of the Arkansas laws himself.  Bud should practice what he preaches and turn himself in for violating our laws regarding illegal weapons (see post of March 30th).

Bud next made a very profound statement that shows us why Gov. Hutchinson thought he was the best and most qualified person available to head up the ABC,  "I think you would find if you checked with the vast majority of alcohol vendors across the state they have a zero tolerance policy." No shit.  I would expect that all of them would say that. No reasonable person would tell anyone that they sell alcohol to minors. 

The Benton Police Department press release makes no mention of any ABC Enforcement agents involvement. If ABC was involved, why would a report need to be sent to them?

Even Lil Boyce got in on the tv news action.

Bryant High School teacher accused of sexual misconduct with a student

The Bryant Police Department confirms an on-going investigation of a now former Bryant teacher, Heather Danielle (Hall) Hare. Hare (age 32) has been accused of sexual contact with a student.  Hare was featured on ABC Good Morning America in May 2020 when a course she taught was discontinued during the pandemic. At this point no details of the alleged illegal conduct have been released. Earlier today the school district posted this on a Bryant Schools Facebook page. According to on-line school board records, Hare submitted her resignation effective April 1, 2023.     Hare is married and is a resident of Conway, AR. KATV featured the Hare family in another story on October 31, 2022. Stay tuned for updates.

ASP Trooper Jacob Haynie caught on his own mobile video recordings using the N-word

On November 21, 2023, after one of those questionable PIT maneuvers (the ASP now calls  Precision Immobilization Technique , or PIT maneuvers, Tactical Vehicle Intervention or TVI) ASP rookie trooper and former Hope Arkansas cop Jacob Haynie was caught on his and other ASP mobile video recordings using profanity and the N-word.   ASP policy prohibits the behavior and words Trooper Haynie uttered. That same policy also prohibits actions and behaviors that reflect unfavorably on the ASP. Haynie's wife works at the Hempstead County Assessors office. Wonder if she uses that language at work too?  ### The full videos can be viewed on many of the YouTube Channels that feature ASP videos.  A follower of one channel identifies Haynie as the one uttering the words. Apparently that individual knows Haynie and might have worked with him at Hope PD. ASP claims no one said the words "climb" or "N***a" and the trooper using the fowl language was actually Tyler Gentry. Ri

Three LRPD cops "relieved of duty" over incident at Club Trois

Sources at LRPD have confirmed a tip we received that three LRPD cops, Brad Stewart, Lee Pitts and Justin Sims have been "relieved of duty" in connection with an incident at Club Trois. The story we were told is that Stewart was working off-duty at Club Trois and dealt with an inebriated female club patron by soaking her with pepper spray.  LRPD General Order  ("G.O.") 303 requires that a cop that uses physical force, non-lethal control and compliance devices, on or off-duty, follow certain procedures. Use of pepper spray is a Level 4 event. Here are the specific procedures. LRPD sources tell us that they are trained to call MEMS after they use pepper spray or a taser on an individual. They are to file an incident report and they file an officer's report or letter form (5600-2) with their immediate supervisor for each use of force incident. Here's an example of an officer letter form.   Not a single procedure was followed in this incident. And to make matter
