Arkansas State Trooper on administrative leave after allegations of domestice violence

Trooper Trevor Matthew Stevenson

Court records we obtained after receiving a tip reveal that Arkansas State Police Trooper Trevor Stevenson is the subject of an Order of Protection due to domestic violence perpetrated upon his estranged wife, Julia Reddit Stevenson, who happens to be a North Little Rock cop.

Julia Reddit Stevenson

Julia Stevenson filed for an Order of Protection on October 31, 2022 and this was her affidavit for the Order of Protection.

This is full file we obtained from the Pulaski County Circuit Clerk.

 That filing got the trooper placed on administrative leave.

The couple married in October 2010.


Trevor Stevenson has a history of driving while intoxicated. He was able to get off a DWI charge probably due to white privilege and a plea agreement for a lesser charge. Court records bear this out.

Perhaps alcohol abuse is a factor in the domestic abuse.

Studies have found that a minimum of 40 percent of families of police officers have experienced some type of domestic violence. This can include anything from harassment and stalking to homicide. That’s well above the 10 percent of the population as a whole.

Of course, the number could be much higher, since domestic abuse goes unreported, and family members of officers may believe that fellow police officers won’t help them. Victims of domestic violence by police officers may feel particularly at risk because the officer is licensed to carry a gun, is familiar with how the system works and is more likely to find the victim if he or she goes to a shelter.

Research has shown that even when there is evidence of guilt in domestic violence cases, officers rarely serve jail time or even lose their jobs. One study of Los Angeles officers found that from 1990 to 1997, in 227 cases of alleged domestic abuse, 91 were sustained. Of these, four officers were convicted on criminal charges. One had his conviction expunged. 

We made a request to the Arkansas State Police for a copy of Stevenson's personnel file.

He is trying to keep us from obtaining it but the Arkansas Attorney General has consistently opined that those records are not exempt from release under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act.  Here is a recent example of an individual that objected to the release of their personnel file.

We were surprised that the AG failed to include us as a footnote in this opinion as she did in here opinion No. 2018-007.


That case back in 2015 was our first lawsuit involving a denial of public records in by a governmental body. 


Perhaps she doesn't want it use it anymore as it actually was a case she lost.

As we like to say, Fuck Around and Find out!

When we received Stevenson's file we will update the post.


We could not locate any incident reports about abuse filed by Julia Stevenson. However we did locate this incident involving a NLRPD K-9 attacking her stepson.

Police K-9's are not pets and it seems that having an animal trained to be aggressive around kids that are not daily members of a dog handler's household endangers that child.

Here are some recent examples of similar situations.




Records obtained from the Arkansas State Police indicate that Trooper Stevenson is also a member of the Army National Guard. No doubt they will be interested in these allegation of domestic abuse.


We also found out he became a ASP Trooper in 2018 and was a prison guard before that. We'll get his file from the Department of Corrections and see what it reveals.


Stevenson indicated on his application that he worked as a cop in Batesville, AR

from 2016-2018. We'll send a request for his records with them as well.

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

Pulaski County Department headed by State Senator Fred Love is in trouble.

By Russ Racop On July 31st we broke the story that there was an internal investigation afoot at the Pulaski County office of Community Services.   A recipient of Section 8 HVC vouchers contacted us on that same day for assistance and we began our investigation.   Her landlord contacted her and told her she had three days to get out of her apartment because she had fraudulently obtained assistance.    The landlord had been contacted by Love's staff before she had. She didn't understand what was going on because she just moved into the apartment and had been vetted and approved for assistance by Love's department. It's not the first time someone has reached out to us about Fred Love and that county department.  Love also serves in the state legislature as a Senator. We have received allegations and some records about sexual and workplace harassment, malfeasance and misuse of county resources involving Love. We immediately called the number listed on that rent payment noti
