LRPD suspends three cops after another shooting incident - Second incident so far this year

LRPD cops Lindsay Renee Coffman (25) a resident of Bauxite,  Dakota Michael Faircloth (28) a resident of Ward,  Mark N. Ray (53) a resident of Little Rock were all placed on administrative leave after a shooting incident on Sunday, February 5th at the Villas on Sixth Fifth (formally Spanish Jon's Apartments).


The LRPD incident report states that James Harold Mosby, Jr. was not mentally afflicted.

We found that Mosby has a documented history of commitments to psychiatric hospitals here in Pulaski County and has been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic.


In fact, in a previous criminal trail he was found to be unfit to proceed and all charges against him were dismissed.


 


 

A sister of Mosby's contacted us and stated that she had called LRPD for a wellness check on her brother and assistance to get him to the Arkansas State Hospital.

The Scott Administration's LRPD has refused to provide us with a copy of that 911 call.


FOI Denial of Rights lawsuits filed over police departments refusing to release 911 calls in similar instances have resulted in courts ordering those police departments to turn over the recordings as they are non-exempt public records.

One such case was back in 2015 when fellow Blue Hog Report blogger and attorney Matt Campbell sought 911 recordings in the case of a Garland County judge, Wayne Naramore, that left his infant son in his car on a hot summer day and basically baked him to death.

Mosby's sister provided us with information LRPD provided to her and we were the first new organization to release names of officers involved in the sketchy situation.



 

That sister also told us those LRPD cops hid behind her vehicle (one that they refused to let her move out of the way before all hell broke loose) and it was riddled with bullets from their errant gunfire. 

LRPD personnel files show that all three of the suspended cops were hired at the same time and went through recruit school together.




Coffman, who originally hails  from  Caddo Gap, was employed as server at Local Lime before she became a LRPD cop.

Faircloth, who originally hails from Rose Bud, was sprinker installer before he became a LRPD cop.

 

Ray, in the sunset of his employment life, ditched his position as an insurance agent and grabbed that 5k signing bonus and became a LRPD cop. Perhaps he was inspired by the ABC television show "The Rookie".


 

Ray used two LRPD cops as references.


When Ray was hired he was married and lived in Bryant. His wife filed for divorce in August 2022 and he relocated to an apartment on Hinson Loop Road in West Little Rock.

The Divorce was granted in October 2022.


Apparently Ray and Coffman have a connection as they do a lot together outside of work.

Apparently Ray has a strange hankering for spiders and stealing time.

And yes that was Coffman watching him.

Ray's Facebook page is full of anti vax, anti mask, right wing trumpian posts.

Here are a few examples.


This is the second officer involved shooting that involved an individual with mental issues this year.

Last month we wrote about two other mercenary LRPD cops that shot a man that was holding a pistol to his head. Click here to view that post.

LRPD needs to be transparent and release videos from both shootings and the 911 calls.

The new chief says he believes in transparency so it's time to do more than talk.

After this story ran,  LRPD flip-flopped and sent us the recording of the 911 call, albeit heavily redacted in a crucial part of the conversation between LR 911 call-taker and another agency (LRPD, LRFD or MEMS). The sister tells the 911 call-taker her brother has a mental issue.

 


Did the 911 call-taker pass on what the sister said about the man having a mental issue?

What was redacted in the call and why?

Stay tuned.

LRPD released their dispatch and radio traffic of the incident. 

The LRPD dispatcher lied about what the victims sister told a 911 call-taker -about her mentally ill brother. The LRPD dispatcher says the caller thought he would "go postal" when she really told 911 she had not gone to the door because she didn't know what condition he was in (she feared he might be dead). That dispatcher used a trigger word for the mercenary LRPD cops that exacerbated the situation.

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.

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

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
