JUDICIAL CANDIDATE LATONYA AUSTIN LAIRD ARRESTED FOR DRIVING WITH AN EXPIRED LICENSE - SHE STILL OWES THOUSANDS IN UNPAID STATE INCOME TAXES TOO
|LATONYA HAS A HISTORY OF BEING ARRESTED - THIS TIME IT'S FOR TRAFFIC RELATED OFFENSES|
We posted about Latonya on our Bad Attorney's in Arkansas blog a while back - you can see that post by clicking here.
We pointed out that she has some issues that make her the worst possible candidate to hold any public office, especially that of a judge.
Well, Latonya is back in the news. This time she was arrested for driving with an expired drivers license. Corporal Joy Bean with the Arkansas State Highway Police, stopped Latonya on April 11th, for speeding and following too close to another vehicle.

Corporal Bean discovered that Latonya's driver's license had expired the previous month.
Take note of the details in all caps in the docket entry. Latonya let Officer Bean know she was running for a judgeship and was an attorney. Was Latonya trying to impress or intimidate Corporal Bean?
If Latonya was in her own vehicle, she didn't need to state she was a candidate as she has a huge magnetic sign on both the driver and passenger doors of her car.
Apparently Austin ignored the notice from the Department of Finance and Administration about needing to renew her driver's license (sent out a mother or so before it expires) just as she did the ones about paying those pesky state income taxes.
Stay tuned for developments.
