SALINE COUNTY WATER WORKS MANAGER ARRESTED FOR HARASSING ALEXANDER ALDERWOMAN

 
SALINE CO. WATER WORKS MANAGER ROBERT MCKEON BEING ARRESTED BY ALEXANDER POLICE

The general manager of Saline County Water Works, Robert McKeon,  was arrested at his job on Thursday for allegedly harassing an Alexander city alderwoman for over a year.
 

McKeon, 72 of Alexander, was arrested about 2:15 p.m. by officers with the Alexander Police Department. McKeon was taken into custody without incident, remaining uncuffed and requesting the use of his cane, as he was placed in the back of a police cruiser.




According to an Alexander Police Department incident report filed on Wednesday, Alexander alderwoman Melissa Ratliff, 29,  went into the Dollar General to get a drink when she saw McKeon checking out at the register.

McKeon had called out Ratliff’s name to get her attention, she nodded, but then proceeded to head toward the back of the store to avoid McKeon, according to the report. The report says that Ratliff told police she stayed inside the store for 10-15 minutes to make sure McKeon had left, but when she eventually left he was outside waiting for her.

The report says McKeon followed Ratliff to her truck, “aggravating her about the amount of chickens she possessed at her home.” McKeon shouted that she was, “stupid, ignorant and he wanted her gone,” according to the report.

Alderwoman Ratliff reported that there had been multiple run-ins with McKeon over the last year. The report details Ratliff being harassed by McKeon at the Alexander Municipal Building, as well as “five separate occasions” of McKeon “spying on their residence” in Alexander.

Earlier on the same day Ratliff filed a police report about the incident at Dollar General, police had made contact with McKeon when officers were dispatched to a disturbance on Kathy Drive, according to the report.

McKeon was apparently at the home on official water department business, according to the report. The report states that McKeon had “demanded” that he be granted access to the homeowner’s private property to inspect their equipment. The yard has multiple “no trespassing” and “private property” signs posted all along a large privacy fence stretching the property.

An officer and detective with APD informed McKeon that he could not be granted access and there were proper channels that needed to be taken. McKeon told the officer that he would “suffer the consequences if (he) continued to defy him.”

Approximately 15 minutes after APD’s run-in with McKeon on Kathy Drive, the same officer witnessed a truck running a stop sign and nearly colliding with their cruiser, the report states.

The report says that McKeon, upon being asked why he was in the area by APD Chief Burnett, McKeon “indicated that he was gathering evidence of code violations in the neighborhood.” Burnett said he didn’t have the authority to harass people, to which McKeon objected, according to the report. McKeon was cited and released for the traffic violation.

According to the report, McKeon is known to not only be the general manger of Saline County Water Works, but he also serves on the Alexander planning commission and the Saline County waste management board. The report says that Alexander Mayor Paul Mitchell said he was aware of multiple complaints about McKeon's harassment, but they were afraid to come forward and file charges.

England High School teacher caught having sex with a 18 year old former student in a car in a park

England High teacher Courtani Bell and former student Kaylin Sullivan   On Monday January 8, 2024 at around 6 p.m., an England, AR cop caught Courtani Bell (W/F 29) a teacher at England High School engaged in "public sexual indecency" in the back seat of Bell's car in a public park with a former student, Kaylin Sullivan (B/F 18).   Here's the police report.   The court date for the randy pair is set for February 22nd in England District Court. Bell is married (for the time being as a source says he's left her) and lives in Sheridan with her hubby Layton. Bell's cuckholded hubby works at the Sheridan Police Department as a cop.   Sullivan, will turn 19 in February 2024.   There are questions surrounding the commencement of their relationship and did it began when  Sullivan was a student? We reached out to the England School District for a comment. No response was received. ### Here's the police body camera footage of the arrest. Here's a shorter version

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
