LRPD Lt. Michael Ford charged with discharging a weapon and obstructing governmental operations at his Maumelle residence

LRPD mouthpiece Lt. Michael "Lil' Bang" Ford had a blast NYE and caught charges

LRPD Public Information Officer Lt. Michael "Lil' Bang" Ford, Jr. was charged with two criminal offenses by Maumelle Police after a neighbor Martin Marler , a former Pulaski County Sheriff's Deputy, witnessed him firing 40 to 60 rounds from an assault rifle in his back yard and call 911.

Marler is currently employed as a criminal fraud investigator with the State Insurance Department.

Here is the report from the incident.

Both Maumelle and Little Rock Police Departments tried to keep this information from becoming public.
When we initially asked Maumelle PD about the incident they denied responding to any calls at Ford's residence since October 2019 when they responded to a false alarm.

Yeah right.

The report reveals Lt. Ford's lack of honesty when caught in the act of firing a weapon.

He refuses multiple times to identify himself.

He smarts off when the Maumelle officers ask him about firing into the air as many times as he did and how dangerous that is.

Sure he does, he and his group at LRPD put out that information.

While Ford was shooting at imaginary dragons or whatever in the sky, his higher ups and boss at LRPD were responding to similar situations in the most dangerous city in Arkansas and of its size in the USA.

"Lil' Bang" violated numerous LRPD General Orders, Rules and Regulations in his interaction with Maumelle Police Officers.

If that had been him responding to a similar call in Little Rock, we imagine he would have arrested and taken into custody an individual acting in that manner.

Or he might have shot and killed them.

He's done that twice.

We suspect he was suspended after this incident as that would explain why Lt. McClanahan, the individual that previously held Ford's PIO position sent this email out on January 9th.

We sent a request for comments to Chief Keef Humphrey. 

He refused to respond.

That no surprise as his bucket has a big fucking hole in it and it gets larger with each passing day.
LRPD has experienced a sharp increase in illegal officer behavior under the Humphrey administration of the department.  

We report on these matters weekly.

We exposed over 50 LRPD officers that have serious issues with honesty and credibility (click here to view the LRPD Liar's List story).

70% of all LRPD officers are mercenary cops in that they refuse to live in the city that employs them.

80% of the white LRPD officers refuse to live in Little Rock.

The department and the Little Rock Fraternal Order of Police has stated that most all LRPD officers choose to not live in Little Rock is because of crime and schools.

Even the wife of the chief chooses not to live in Little Rock and has remained in Norman, OK.


Ford does not seem to be affected by this incident as he posted a photo of him clubbing on January 3rd on his own Facebook page.

We suspect the mouthy female that yelled at the Maumelle officer was Ford's on and off wife. Dominique Michelle (Henderson) Ford.

We say on and off wife because they were originally married on September 25, 2004.

They divorced in 2010.


Maybe a lawsuit filed against his wife, who was employed as a nurse at St. Vincent, had something to do with the divorce.

 The Ford's went through a Non-Judicial Foreclosure in 2011 over a loan default (LRPD departmental policies and rules frowns on that).

They must have ironed out their differences as they remarried in 2014.

They purchased the home in Maumelle in 2015, but things must have been shaky, or they didn't want to have liens attached to the home as it was only titled in his name.

Ford recently attended a class at the FBI for police officers.

He posted about that on his Facebook page too.

Ford and cops like him is the reason LRPD has a shitty reputation and a lack of respect from the citizens of Little Rock.

City leadership needs to clean house at LRPD from the top down.

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. 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
