Thanks to Jake Bleed with the Department of Finance and Administration, we have again been provided information about underage individuals that the ABC uses in illegal sting operations. 

The reason that the use of underage individuals is illegal, is that Arkansas Code Annotated § 3-3-203 clearly and unequivocally states that it is unlawful for any person under 21 years of age to purchase or have in his or her possession any intoxicating liquor, wine or beer.  

As we previously posted this fact was also documented in a Congressional Report on underage drinking and compliance practices.

Another state agency, Arkansas Tobacco Control,  uses underage individuals in tobacco compliance operations, but they have an exception in the Arkansas law that forbids individuals under 18 years of age from purchasing or possessing tobacco products.


The ABC and the DFA have refused to provide an explanation as to how they believe that they are able to violate the law and encourage underage individuals to break the law in their sting operations.

Granted, the ABC Board can make rules and regulations but they cannot change the law.

So as a public service, once again we are passing on information provided to us to assist the public in an effort to stop the ABC lawbreakers and their corruption of Arkansas' youth and young adults.

The illegal operations these individuals are involved in with the ABC rakes in thousands of dollars for the ABC each month.  

In June, the fines for sales to underage individuals totaled over $37,000.00.
To use a term that tainted ABC Director Boyce Hamlet likes to toss out, most of these young adults are not technically minors.  

In Arkansas the age or majority is 18.  Once you turn 18 you are legally an adult.

This may create a technical issue if the ABC uses an adult operative instead of a minor and cites a permit holder for unknowingly selling alcohol to a minor.


 Stay tuned as we will delve into specific stings/citations made by the ABC in the coming weeks.

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. KTHV featured Hare's daughter in several newscasts . ### ***UPDATE 04/06/23*** Bryant PD provided us with their initial report dated March 31, 2023. ***UPDATE 04/07/23*** Sources report that the Bryant High School football player involved in an "entanglement"

Disgraced ex-LRPD cop and felon lied on her employment application to get job with Arkansas State Police

In 2009, Sheva Howard was a Little Rock cop. She began working at LRPD in 2001 as a Crime Scene Specialist and in 2003 she became a police officer. Howard also worked off-duty, in her LRPD uniform, at Dillard's until she was caught in an act of thievery.  Howard purchased one purse, but it was in a bag so heavy she had to drag it on the ground. That bag was later found to have multiple purses packed into another purse. That incident also ended her career as a cop and gained her a felony conviction.   The LRPD Internal Investigation file reads like a script from an episode of Law & Order.   Howard was found to be untruthful during the internal investigation.   Here's what the local newspaper published about her criminal trial. Howard's supervisor at Dillard's was Willie Robinson. It just so happened that Robinson was and is also an Arkansas State Trooper.   Howard tried to have her conviction overturned but the Arkansas Court of Appeals upheld her conviction.   After

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
