We were tipped off yesterday by a source at LRPD that the brother of the Little Rock mayor had been arrested for stealing a car and kidnapping.

We sent an email to the feckless mayor for comments but he never responded.
In May, a petition to involuntary admit Darrell Scott for observation and treatment of mental illness was filed.
Another petition was filed in late June.
It was dismissed on July 1st because Darrell Scott could not be located.
Perhaps the mayor should have sent his LRPD bodyguard team out to find him. Maybe the auto theft and kidnapping could have been prevented had he been found and hospitalized.
We have previously posted about the mayor's sealed criminal case (for DWI/Prostitution according to law enforcement sources) and in fact at his very first board meeting I demanded he be transparent (one of his campaign platform issues) and come clean about that sealed criminal case. Click here for our first post about his sealed criminal case.
We also posted about his father's violent criminal behavior and numerous petitions for orders of protection filed by his victims. Click here for that post.
That post about his father really pissed off the mayor and his questionable behavior and lack of self control are evident in this video.
Another episode of our mayor's questionable, impulsive behavior was during the uprising over the murder of George Floyd by cops. He joined in with protestors and led them on a march down Capitol Avenue until water balloons were tossed at him. He fled and jumped into the waiting car of his LRPD bodyguards leaving the protestors at the mercy of cops firing rubber bullets and illegal CS gas.
The very next day Feckless Frank apologized in a press conference for his actions calling them a "mistake; a lapse of judgment." He had the gall to say he went there in a "spirit of protection".
You can read our coverage of that and see the mayor's apology by clicking here.
The mayor exhibits traits of certain mental disorders and needs to come clean if he is taking any medications for treatment of mental disorders.
We have a right to know about that and his own criminal past, sealed records and all.
The mayor used his public "pulpit" position as the CEO of the city to make a statement about his brothers situation.
We could not resist making a comment.
This story has become a national news story.
Darrell Scott's PushBlack is still operating in his absence, and like the feckless mayor has not responded to a request for comments.
Darrell Scott is registered to vote here in Pulaski County.
A check of records with the Pulaski County Assessor reveals he did not assess any personal property in the county last year.
According the the Arkansas State Police, Darrell Scott was cited for multiple moving vehicle violations; DWI, careless driving, driving without a license or proof of insurance, obstructing governmental operation and driving with an open container of booze.
Scott wrecked a black SUV around 4:3-0 p.m. south of the city and was taken to Baptist Hospital.
The children kidnapped were two females, ages 4 and 11.
Scott claimed he was sexually assaulted while in the custody of NLRPD and was taken to a local hospital for a rape test to be conducted.
