A complaint has been filed with the Arkansas Ethics Commission concerning violations of Arkansas Law by tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet, Jr.

Hamlet Jr. is accused of failing to file a required Statement of Financial Interest Form within 30 days of his questionable appointment as ABC Enforcement Director. Additional accusations consist of Junior's failure to disclose his refusal to pay taxes, which is considered by Arkansas Law to be a felony. 


Hamlet, Jr.'s refusal to pay his state income taxes resulted in a lien being placed against him by his employer the Department of Finance & Administration.

This is the third complaint in the last two years that has been filed concerning ABC employees. 

Hamlet Jr. is not the first ABC employee to have a lien placed against them for refusing to pay their state income taxes.

The first complaint dealt with the now former Deputy Director of the ABC, Rick Crisman.  Crisman was found to have violated Arkansas Laws by using information obtained in the course of his employment for his own benefit and gain. Crisman was issued a Public Letter of Caution. Apparently the Commission felt that the disgrace to his reputation and forced resignation from the ABC was his dose of Karma.  

The second complaint dealt with the now former ABC Enforcement Agent Jerrell Smith, currently a Pulaski County Sheriff's Deputy.  Smith arranged for an ABC permit holder, William "Billy" Marfoglio, to purchase a Taser for him when he was employed by the ABC as an Enforcement Agent and assigned to monitor Marfoglio's dive bar. The Ethics Commission is still investigating the complaint and if they find probable cause that Smith violated the law, he (and Marfoglio) could be issued a letter of reprimand/caution/warning and be fined $50 to  $2,000  per  violation.

The ABC Enforcement Division has several employees with questionable character and is headed by an individual that a Circuit Court Judge found to lack honesty and integrity which could pose a huge issue in enforcement issues for the ABC.

Governor Hutchinson needs to get rid of Hamlet, Jr. before anymore damage is done to his administration.

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
