Mark Brooke, a probation officer for the city of Ward and pastor of Cornerstone Assembly in Ward, has been arrested on a charge of solicitation of prostitution after arrangements for sex were made with an undercover detective.

The Lonoke County sheriff’s office said in a statement that it began an undercover investigation after receiving complaints of possible unethical actions involving Brooke.

Brooke made “lewd and inappropriate comments” while talking with the undercover detective posing as a probationer.

Brooke later made arrangements for sex in exchange for money with the detective while using his city-provided cellphone.
Brooke was arrested around 2:30 p.m. January 18th by Lonoke County Sheriff John Staley and sheriff’s detectives.


Staley stated that it is never good when someone in a position of authority takes advantage of those in difficult situations; this is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

The Arkansas Department of Community Correction made social media posts to proudly proclaim Brooke was not one of their employees.

We previously posted about an ACC Probation Officer, Roderick Daniels, that was arrested and plead guilty to a felony charge.  Roderick the Felon is now employed by the failed Pulaski County Special School District at Robinson Middle School even though this blog proved to the PCSSD that he lied multiple times on his application for employment and hid his felony conviction.  You can read about that here.

Daniel's mother, Carla Daniels, has also been featured in several stories here as well.

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

Pulaski County Department headed by State Senator Fred Love is in trouble.

By Russ Racop On July 31st we broke the story that there was an internal investigation afoot at the Pulaski County office of Community Services.   A recipient of Section 8 HVC vouchers contacted us on that same day for assistance and we began our investigation.   Her landlord contacted her and told her she had three days to get out of her apartment because she had fraudulently obtained assistance.    The landlord had been contacted by Love's staff before she had. She didn't understand what was going on because she just moved into the apartment and had been vetted and approved for assistance by Love's department. It's not the first time someone has reached out to us about Fred Love and that county department.  Love also serves in the state legislature as a Senator. We have received allegations and some records about sexual and workplace harassment, malfeasance and misuse of county resources involving Love. We immediately called the number listed on that rent payment noti
