We previously posted about April Mathis, now a former employee of Cody Hiland back when he was Prosecuting Attorney for the 20th Judicial District. You can read those posts by clicking here, here, here, here and here.

Mathis was forced to reign or be fired after her illegal activities were revealed by this blog and she filed a false police report about her children being "kidnapped."

She is now reported to be working as a substitute teacher - check you kids schools in Conway and surrounding towns - she is someone that we would not want our children or anyone's children exposed to. 

We filed an complaint with the Arkansas Ethics Commission concerning Mathis using her position in the office of the Prosecuting Attorney for the 20th Judicial District for her own personal gain and benefit. You can view the complaint by clicking here.

The publisher of this blog received notice of the date for the final adjudication hearing in today's mail.  

Based on our experience with the Ethics Commission, they will find that she violated Arkansas law and deal out the appropriate sanctions.

But that is not the end of April's troubles.

Conway Police also investigated Mathis and found reason to believe that she had criminally violated Arkansas laws and turned a file over to Conway City Attorney Chuck Clawson. 

Clawson was reluctant to get involved as there are rumors that he and Mathis had a fling and that led to his divorce.

Clawson's divorce case was sealed and we cannot review or obtain copies of case filings to see if such allegations were made. 

There must be a reason Clawson wanted his divorce case sealed as sealing divorce case files is rare, except in Faulkner County where they like to hide a lot of salacious information. 

After months of prodding by the publisher of this blog, Clawson requested a Special Prosecutor be appointed.

We spoke with the appointed Special Prosecutor Jack McQuary earlier this week and he advised us that the matter is being reviewed and a decision about filing charges against her will be forthcoming.

McQuary acts as a Special Prosecutor in cases all over the state and has a busy caseload as lots of Prosecuting Attorney's don't want to get involved in a case that involves friends or individuals that they have some sort or relationship with.

We also understand from sources inside the Faulkner County Circuit Court system (yes court employees like to read this blog) that this blog was the subject of attention in a recent hearing in April's domestic relations case.

Her attorney,  James "Bugsy" Barger, wanted to find out how we obtained all our information about his client.

Too bad he did not subpoena the publisher of the blog as he would have learned about the little thing called the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act. But he is not concerned with the truth.

Stay tuned for updates.

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
