Officer Michael Turner of the Bryant Police Department has assisted ABC Enforcement Agents in questionable operations that involve using minors to try and purchase alcoholic beverages.  

These operations are questionable because Arkansas laws make it very clear that it is against the law for a minor to  purchase or posses alcoholic beverages.  Arkansas law makes no exceptions for compliance or law enforcement purposes.

The ABC using Officer Turner is also questionable as Turner has issues with honesty and credibility and was the subject of disciplinary action by the Bryant Police Department for his lack of candor, conduct unbecoming an officer, immoral conduct and inattention to duty.


According to the documents we obtained from the Bryant Police Department, Turner offered to fix a ticket of the female complainant.  He also sent some sexually charged text messages. Turner also lied about having any contact with the female complainant.

Here are some examples of the Facebook messages and text messages:

Turner tried to scrub his Facebook page of incriminating evidence and went so far as to remove all his female Facebook friends.

A check of his Facebook page reveals that he has some female Facebook friends again.


Turner has no business being with female or males minors given the fact that he was cited for immoral conduct.  His issues with honesty and credibility also pose problems in ABC operations and in cases that go to court.

We sent a copy of Turner's Internal Affairs file to the ABC and DFA and asked them some questions.

The ABC and DFA did not respond to our questions.

No wonder.  The ABC has Boyce Hamlet, the tainted ABC Enforcement Director who lied in an internal investigation and was fired from his position with the Arkansas State Police.  Then for the next 15 years Hamlet lied about his employment history and made false statements under oath to obtain law enforcement jobs that he had no business obtaining due to his unfitness.

How can the ABC or DFA purge themselves of  other bad cops that work for or with when they have Hamlet in charge of ABC Enforcement?

They can't.  Their hands are tied.  They are screwed and they know it.  That's why they never respond to questions about Hamlet and the ones put to them last week about Turner.

Their lack of response speaks volumes.

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
