Tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet signed an Offer of Settlement with the Arkansas Ethics Commission admitting that he violated Arkansas Code Annotated § 21-8-701(c)(1)(A), by failing to file a mandatory Statement of Financial Interest within thirty days of his appointment to his position.

The complainant (the publisher of this blog) told the Ethics Commission back in August that Hamlet did not want to file that form because it would have reflected that he failed to pay his state income taxes when due (a felony in Arkansas). 

It was also pointed out that Hamlet filed a false document with the Department of Finance and Administration when he began employment stating that he owed no taxes and had no liens filed against him.  The issue of his failure to pay taxes when due and a Certificate of Indebtedness being filed against him could cause him to loose his job.

DFA quickly found that Hamlet lied about owing taxes and having a lien filed against him as they ran his name and social security number through their system of deadbeats.  Hamlet had to fork over the cash to keep his appointed position.

We commend all the members of the Arkansas Ethics Commission for having the intestinal fortitude to go against a fellow appointee and hand it to him like they did (all members voted unanimously to make this finding).



 Here is the complete set of letters from the Arkansas Ethics Commission.

It is incredible that Governor Hutchinson keeps this buffoon on the public payroll when he does not meet the minimum qualifications for the position, only holds certification as a parole officer and lied about his employment history for the past 15 years to cover up his hiring and firing by the Arkansas State Police for multiple acts of dishonesty to obtain positions with law enforcement agencies that he would not be able to obtain if he told the truth. Hamlet's long time pattern of lying and filing false documents is undeniable.

Hamlet's presence at the ABC is an embarrassment for Governor Hutchinson and he has no place with any law enforcement organization due to his classification as a Brady Officer.



Yeah Boyce, you technically broke the law. Just like you technically lied and covered up your hiring and firing by the state police (for cheating on an exam and then lied multiple times in an internal investigation) to get jobs as a probation officer, correctional officer, wildlife officer, investigator  and finally ABC enforcement director.

Even in this matter, when Hamlet could simply admit that he violated the law and move on, he lies about it to avoid dealing with the truth. And he didn't deal with the Ethics Commission himself, his attorney did.

Hamlet's whole life is a lie and he needs to man up and admit it.

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
