Rookie ABC Enforcement Agent and former long time Arkansas State Trooper, Shelby Clark, abandoned his assigned ABC job duties to look for an alleged bank robber back in November 2015.

On the  slow Monday afternoon of November 30, 2015, Clark had just finished his lunch at Kelly's Restaurant in Wynne and was heading out to make some compliance checks.  Suddenly, over the Arkansas State Police radio that is in his ABC vehicle, Clark heard an announcement about a Bank robbery in Brinkley, AR.

Clark took it upon himself to drop his official duties as an ABC Enforcement Agent and head out to Brinkley some 40 miles away. Mind you that several local, county and state law enforcement agents were already on the case.

Clark stopped a truck on the highway because the driver fit the description of one of the robbers (white redneck, wearing a ball cap - a description that fits most of eastern Arkansas).  Nevermind the fact that the suspects were stated to have left the bank in a blue Nissan sedan.

Clark contacted his brother, Ark. State Police Captain Jackie Clark and started giving him ideas on what to do (Shelby held the rank of corporal when he left the state police, they don't usually boss a captain around).

Clark drove all around Brinkley, Cotton Plant and Des Arc trying to catch the alleged bank robbers.  When he heard on the radio that the suspects were at a Brinkley motel, he hauled ass back to Brinkley.


Just so you know, most bank robberies only net the robbers less than $3,000.00 (the average amount in a teller drawer).  It appears in this robbery it was closer to $1,000.00. 

Clark sent a memorandum (containing several spelling and grammatical  errors) to his boss to claim that if he had not been involved in the hunt, the robbers would have gotten away.

It appears that besides leaving behind half of his state trooper salary (he made $62, 383 as a trooper and makes $33,861 as an enforcement agent), Clark finds leaving behind real police work for compliance work difficult as well.

We understand that tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet wants his agents to write speeding tickets, etc.  This is what happens when an idiot like Hamlet gets appointed to a position to which he is not qualified, nor has the experience to make sound decisions.

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

Pulaski County Department headed by State Senator Fred Love is in trouble.

By Russ Racop On July 31st we broke the story that there was an internal investigation afoot at the Pulaski County office of Community Services.   A recipient of Section 8 HVC vouchers contacted us on that same day for assistance and we began our investigation.   Her landlord contacted her and told her she had three days to get out of her apartment because she had fraudulently obtained assistance.    The landlord had been contacted by Love's staff before she had. She didn't understand what was going on because she just moved into the apartment and had been vetted and approved for assistance by Love's department. It's not the first time someone has reached out to us about Fred Love and that county department.  Love also serves in the state legislature as a Senator. We have received allegations and some records about sexual and workplace harassment, malfeasance and misuse of county resources involving Love. We immediately called the number listed on that rent payment noti
