Arkansas Ethics Commisson sets hearing for campaign law violations of LRSD board member and past president Vicki Hatter


In September 2021, we reported on a complaint filed with the Arkansas Ethics Commission by our Russ Racop regarding serious criminal violations of Arkansas campaign finance laws by Vicki Hatter.

Apparently Hatter refused to accept a settlement offer by the commission and that has resulted in their scheduling a final hearing on the complaint on June 10, 2022 at 11:00 a.m.


The Ethics Commission won't deal with the question of Hatter's residency but public records suggest she did not and doesn't reside in the zone she was elected to represent.

If this problem isn't bad enough for Hatter, she has debt collectors suing her and trying to serve her with legal papers. 

Note to the Dowler Law Firm... you can effect service on her at a LRSD Board meeting or try and catch her at her final hearing at the Ethics Commission on June 10th (if she bothers to show up).

Hatter does have a history of failing to appear for legal proceedings.

Back in 2015, she was cited for several misdemeanor offenses relating to a speeding ticket and failing to pay the court ordered fine pursuant to an agreed upon payment plan.

A warrant was issued for her arrest and she made a payment. Hatter had multiple arrest warrants issued for failing to make the balance of the court ordered fine. It took over a year to get that matter resolved.

Hatter also was the subject of a state tax lien for failing to pay state income taxes when due (a felony offense).

And in 2020, Hatter was issued a citation by LRPD for failure to register her vehicle and have a valid license plate.

This was during the height of the pandemic when courts were holding Zoom hearings. She ditched a hearing with the excuse she had "no internet access".

Funny, because at the same time she was appearing in Zoom school board meetings.

Hatter needs to be censored by the LRSD school board and she needs to resign her position. 

We don't need corrupt, dishonest individuals involved with the education of our children and the expenditure of public funds.

 ***UPDATE 6/4/22***

Our Russ Racop reports that he received a copy of a signed settlement letter from the Ethics Commission in which Hatter admitted her criminal activities.

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
