Back in June 16th,  LRPD Officer Evan Keith Howell was suspended for pointing a BB gun at a citizen (terroristic threatening) when he responded to a call.


After an internal investigation was conducted, a criminal case file was submitted to the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney for review.

The matter was made public on July 9th, and we made a Freedom of Information request.

 LRPD responded our request twenty-two days later on July 31st. 

Responding to our request twenty-two days later is a violation of the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act. The AFOIA requires a response withing three days.

That delay was addressed in the second lawsuit our publisher filed against Chief "NegroPapi" Buckner and that delay caused Judge Mackie Pierce to issue this statement to Buckner at the end of the hearing:

Moving on to this morning, we sent a follow-up request to records we asked for over three months ago.

 LRPD responded.

We must pause here to advise you dear readers of a fact - Lt. Ford is a liar.

He lied when giving testimony in our publishers first lawsuit against his boss and in the second one he made a false affidavit and his lie was caught in the direct questioning of his subordinate, Sgt. Rebecca Junkins, which caused city attorney Alex Betton to not call him to testify even though he was present at the hearing


Our publisher started to call him to the stand anyway, but did not want to prolong the hearing as the Judge had another matter hear.  Rest assured, we will have a detailed post about Lt. Michael "Lil Liar" Ford in the coming days.

So once again, our publisher will be appealing LRPD's decision to violate our laws once again and Buckner will be back in court to get "dinged".

Here are some lingering questions about this matter:

Why the officer in his report did not identify Howell's employment as a police officer and did not refer to Howell as Officer Howell in the report narrative is telling.

The report indicates that Officer Howell committed a Class D felony. 

We suspect that the criminal case file LRPD gave to the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney accuses Officer Howell of a felony.

Why then is he still employed by LRPD?

Their own policies support his termination. You can view them by clicking here and here.

We found an interesting fact when preparing this post.

The officer that filed the report of this incident, Jude Silva, once arrested Howell when he was a teenager.

***UPDATE 9/17/18*** 

On September 10th we called the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney's office to make an inquiry about the Howell case and they transferred us to chief deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Johnson.  We were sent directly to his voicemail and we left a message requesting the status of the Howell case. He never returned our call.

On September 11th we called the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney's office again and stated we wanted to make a verbal FOI request. We were transferred to the voicemail of Melanie Martin. We made our verbal FOI request. Again we never received a call back, the requested information  or a deniual of our request.

Perhaps Martin is on a leave of absence so she can campaign for her race for district judge.

JOHNSON AND MARTIN (circled in red)

So we called back today to follow up on our request and to see why it was ignored.

After leaving another voicemail message for Johnson, he called back (perhaps it was our remarks about no one having the balls to return our calls that spurred him to call back this time).  We were told that his office had to send the case back to LRPD for affidavits.

Justice works slow in Pulaski County, especially if the suspect is a law enforcement officer.

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"

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
