The Arkansas Times published a story this morning that reported on this blog exposing the firing of ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet from the Arkansas State Police and Hamlet's subsequent falsification of his employment history on job applications and forms submitted to the Arkansas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Training (CLEST). 

We had submitted a Freedom of Information request to the Arkansas State Police (ASP) for the investigative file concerning Hamlet that was conducted by their Special Investigation Unit that led to Hamlet being fired.  Documents previously released to us by the ASP stated that Hamlet admitted to cheating on an exam. The documents provided also indicate that Hamlet lied multiple times to the investigators.

Further investigation revealed that Hamlet provided false and misleading information concerning his employment history of job applications and forms submitted to CLEST.  Providing false information is a misdemeanor under Arkansas Law ( Ark. Code Annotated § 5-53-103).
By providing false and misleading information, Hamlet was able to hide his employment and termination from the ASP and possibly obtain employment with law enforcement agencies that he might not have obtained if he had truthfully reported the information as required by Arkansas laws.

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge herself pinned the opinion that denied us and the citizens of Arkansas the right to learn about what Hamlet did that usually ends a law enforcement career.  We we not surprised at the outcome, because Rutledge and others are providing a quid pro quo to Hamlet for working for their election to office. Rutledge is not know for having common sense as a racist and derogatory email she circulated when she was an attorney for the Arkansas Department of Human Services clearly indicates . Rutledge resigned while under DHS scrutiny of her poor job performance.  DHS placed a do not rehire note in her personnel file according to stories by the Arkansas Times and Blue Hog Report.

We plan on filing legal action to obtain the ASP investigative file and believe that we can make an excellent case to support that its release is in indeed in the public interest (the one and only thing that Rutledge stated in her opinion that was lacking for release of the information).

We are certain that many ABC Enforcement agents would like to buy Max Brantley a drink for getting the information out to a wider audience about the character (or lack thereof) of Boyce Hamlet.

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. KTHV featured Hare's daughter in several newscasts . ### ***UPDATE 04/06/23*** Bryant PD provided us with their initial report dated March 31, 2023. ***UPDATE 04/07/23*** Sources report that the Bryant High School football player involved in an "entanglement"

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
