Since his arrest for the robbery of the Subiaco Federal Credit Union on June 12, 2015, Shaun Higham of Paris, AR had been a prisoner awaiting trial in the Logan County Jail. That was until June 28th when he and another inmate picked a lock with a toothbrush and escaped at around 4 a.m.

Sheriff Boyd Hicks had  conducted a week long search that included federal, state, county and city law officers and other agencies including the Arkansas Department of Correction, the Office of Emergency Management and Arkansas State Parks. Helicopters and dog teams were brought in to aid in the search.


Hicks had concentrated the search for Higham west of Paris along an abandoned railroad bed. There were reports of a break-in of a trailer near the railroad bed and possible sightings over the succeeding days along the railroad bed, each farther west than the preceding report.

Despite bringing in helicopters for aerial searches and dogs to search for tracks or scent, none of the sightings was confirmed.

Searchers had run out of leads, and Hicks said Tuesday that he was meeting with the U.S. Marshals Service and the Arkansas State Police to possibly widen the search on the chance that Higham had left the area to reach family or friends in other parts of the state or in other states.

Sheriff Hicks was surprised when he received a call from Mitch's Place just outside Paris, AR telling him that Higham was at the tavern and wanted to turn himself in.


Apparently Higham has a thing for beer joints as he was arrested back in June 2015 hiding out at the Friendly Tavern in Scranton, AR.

When deputies arrived at Mitch's Place they were surprised to find a dirty and disheveled Higham sitting at the bar drinking a beer which had been given to him by the tavern's owner, Mitchell Ford. Deputies did not let Higham finish the beer before taking him back into custody. The beer Highman was drinking was reportedly a Bud Light.

We expect that tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet will send J.C. Rider and his henchman underling Chris Boyd to investigate the matter.

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
