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.
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.
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.
