Disgraced ex-LRPD cop and felon lied on her employment application to get job with Arkansas State Police

In 2009, Sheva Howard was a Little Rock cop. She began working at LRPD in 2001 as a Crime Scene Specialist and in 2003 she became a police officer.

Howard also worked off-duty, in her LRPD uniform, at Dillard's until she was caught in an act of thievery.  Howard purchased one purse, but it was in a bag so heavy she had to drag it on the ground.

That bag was later found to have multiple purses packed into another purse.

That incident also ended her career as a cop and gained her a felony conviction.


The LRPD Internal Investigation file reads like a script from an episode of Law & Order.


Howard was found to be untruthful during the internal investigation.


Here's what the local newspaper published about her criminal trial.

Howard's supervisor at Dillard's was Willie Robinson. It just so happened that Robinson was and is also an Arkansas State Trooper.


Howard tried to have her conviction overturned but the Arkansas Court of Appeals upheld her conviction.


After her release from jail Howard held some menial jobs. She even petitioned the court to have her name changed but apparently she decided to keep using Howard as her last name.

Howard held a couple of menial jobs after her release from jail and in 2019 applied for a position with the Arkansas State Police in their Crimes Against Children Division.

On her application for employment Howard state that she "retired" from her employment with the Little Rock Police Department.

Howard wrote that knowing full well that it was a lie.

So know the Arkansas State Police has a problem. 

They have a convicted felon, who lied on their application for employment, working in a sensitive position.

Any work related reports taken by Howard and used in an investigation are tainted due to her history of untruthfulness. And that poses a big problem for the ASP and the Prosecuting Attorney's throughout the state that prosecute any case that Howard took part in.


Howard had an accomplice in her thievery at Dillard's. Fellow Dillard's employee Regina Hampton.

According to the newspaper article LRPD did not charge Hampton in connection with the theft, and she sure "took the 5th" when she was called to testify.

Hampton's interview with LRPD detectives can be found in the investigation file we included in this post.

One document in that file revealed that Howard lied about her association with Hampton.


Hampton is currently employed by the Little Rock School District as the secretary at Parkview High School.

Apparently like the ASP, LRSD will hire anyone.


Another interesting thing is that Howard listed LRPD cop Christopher Scott as a reference.

Christopher Scott

LRPD has a policy that LRPD cops cannot associate with felons. Looks like he might be having a conversation with LRPD internal affairs in the near future.

Scott is a fuckup too. 

Here are records regarding his latest suspension in a illegal use of force incident.


It's not the first time Scott has caught a suspension for illegal use of a weapon.

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
