LRPD Detective John Brawley arrested for assault on family or household member

John Brawley - another LRPD officer arrested for domestic violence

LRPD Major Crimes/Violent Crimes Detective John Brawley was arrested and booked into the Saline County jail on charges of 3rd degree assault on a family or household member.

Brawley was booked and released.

We posted about Brawley having a take-home vehicle in July 2019 (click here for that story).

According to public records he and an Angela Brawley lived in Benton.

We found that Brawley and his wife Angela divorced in 2013.

At the time of publication we had not determined if they had remarried.

Brawley was suspended back in 2007.

Brawley was also involved in two shootings:

01/04/2005 - Four officers fired their weapons at a stolen car suspect. They fired 43 rounds only wounding the suspect once in his hand.

⧫ 07/15/2005 - Officers fired at suspect holding a cellphone they thought was a handgun (no gun found). Rounds fire hit a second suspect too.

Brawler violated the social media policy when he posted this back in 2013  without obtaining permission.

We sent a text message to LRPD Chief Humphrey for comment.

He did not respond.

We have requested booking records from the Saline County Sheriff's Office and will update this story as more information is obtained.


***UPDATE 1/10/2020***

We received the report the Benton Police Department filed about the Brawley Domestic Violence incident and it reveals some disturbing, but not unexpected information about Det. Brawley.

We have put in a request to Benton PD for the body camera footage. Stay tuned for updates.

***UPDATE 01/10/2020 5:00 PM CST***

A highly placed source has advised us to make another a FOI request to Benton PD as a detective assigned to the Brawley Case has filed a supplemental report that included photographs of needles and vials containing a liquid substance.

An update will be posted upon receipt of additional records.

***UPDATE 01/14/2020 5:16 PM CST*** 

Benton PD responded to our request for the supplemental information.


The vial has Enanthate on it. 

Enanthate is used to treat low testosterone levels in men. It is also used in hormone therapy fro transgender men.

It is a Schedule III Controlled Substance.

We didn't see a prescription label on the vial or a box with a prescription label on it in the photos.

Enanthate is used to treat low testosterone levels in men. It is also used in hormone therapy fro transgender men.

The Benton PD is getting the body camera footage from the incident for us.

Can't wait so see that and what Brawley's demeanor is like during the incident.

Look for an update soon.

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
