England, AR teacher in hot water for forging community service forms in her DWI case and making false job applications omitting her employment and resignation at NLRSD.

Early in the morning of Sunday, November 21, 2021 Conway cop Matthew Edgmon was heading to work for the day in his take-home patrol vehicle. A Ford Mustang blew past him dragging the rear plastic bumper cover behind it.

 

Edgmon observed the Mustang for a while swerving in and out of it's lane of travel. The Mustang was speeding away from him and once it entered the Conway city limits he was going to pull it over. Edgmon had to accelerate up to 116 mph to catch up with the Mustang.

Withrow told Edgmon that she was coming home from her part-time job as a jello shot server at the Electric Cowboy in Little Rock.  She also told him she was a teacher in the North Little Rock.

Edgmon detected the smell of alcohol on Withrow's breath.

Withrow failed field sobriety tests and was taken into custody.

A search of Withrow's purse revealed a container of weed...

 

A vaping device that contained a THC cartridge...


And he found a small clear container marked "neck cream" that contained suspected cocaine residue.

 

At Conway PD Withrow was given a  blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test and blew a .11% (.008% gets you a DWI charge).

Withrow admitted that she had used marijuana and cocaine over the course of the night and confirmed that the vaping device contained a THC cartridge.   

There is no reference in the incident report that Withrow possessed an Arkansas Medical Marijuana Card nor that she made any remarks about having one.

Here's the narrative from the incident report that goes into much more detail.

Withrow was arrested and booked into the Faulkner county jail.




Withrow's case was set for trial on March 31, 2022.


At her March 31, 2022 trial she caught a break. The two drug related charges were Nolle Prosequi, meaning that the prosecutor did not pursue those charges. She pleaded guilty to the DWI offense and got a sweet deal on that too.

Was White Privilege a factor?

 

That probably had something to do with her soft sentence but from records obtained from the Conway City Attorney, it was the State Crime Lab taking over six months to provide lab results for the suspicious pill found in her purse and the other drugs.  Toss in the Defense Attorney's offer of accepting a plea deal in which she would cop to the DWI if the other charges were not pursued,  it appears that what got the deal done.


Withrow got 2 days in jail (not noted if she received credit for any time served), $1,000 fine and 24 hours of community service work. She also had to complete an Alcohol Safe Education course.

Withrow started paying off her fine and turned in her community service hours.

Apparently she used the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce as the agency and she went to Toad Suck Days and claimed that as fulfillment of her sentence.

 


How do we know it was the Conway Chamber? 

 

Turns out that the she was only credited with half the time she claimed.

According to a notation on the adjusted form, Withrow was notified on May 5, 2022 that she needed additional community service hours. The 24 hours had to be completed by August 31, 2022.

Apparently Withrow said forget that and considered the matter of community service hours concluded.

Then the worm turned and it was determined that Withrow had forged the records.

A warrant was issued for her arrest on November 2, 2022 for failure to comply with her soft sentence.  



The warrant was not served on her until October 26, 2023 and a trial on her Contempt of Court charge was set for December 20, 2023.


Withrow's new attorney filed a motion for a continuance on December 8, 2023 and the Court granted that motion on that same day. The trial was rescheduled for February 14, 2024.

 

On December 12, 2023, Withrow's new attorney waived formal arraignment and entered a plea of not guilty.


 Withrow's next court appearance is scheduled for May 8, 2024.


Here's what we know about Withrow's employment as a "teacher" and what she doesn't want her current employer to know.

Withrow graduated from UALR in 2020. During college and afterwards she worked as a substitute teacher in Conway and North Little Rock school districts and at Target. She also worked part-time at the Electric Cowboy in Little Rock selling jello shots, but you won't find that on her resume'.


Withrow was hired by NLRSD in July 2021 and her first day of work was August 10, 2021.


 

Her background check for that position was run in July 2021. Note that Withrow had and has no license to teach in Arkansas.

 

Withrow resigned from NLRSD on February 7, 2022 (she incorrectly dated her resignation letter 2020 instead of 2022)

 



On or about November 28, 2022, Withrow went to work for Westwind School for Performing Arts, a charter school in North Little Rock. She posted a photo of her desk in her new classroom on her Facebook page a couple of days later.


Withrow did not advise that charter school she had been employed by the NLRSD and resigned that position. 

This is the resume she used in her application to the charter school. No reference to employment at NLRSD.

In July of 2023, Withrow went to work at the England School District. And suprise, surprise, records obtained from the England School District reveal that Withrow did not list her employment and resignation from the North Little Rock School District.



Again not that Withrow still has not obtained a license to teach in Arkansas.


Although Withrow is employed as a long-term substitute in England, they are paying her the same salary as a certified teacher would receive.

Conway Police are looking for information about a fight that happend last night. Tell them we have all the tea.

  The family of a man that is a contractor for ARDOT showed their klan cards last night after a fight at Maly's Entertainment Center in Conway, AR. Michael Wade Kennedy, a convicted felon, allegedly fought with and stabbed a Black teenager outside the venue then he and his klan hurled racial epithets at the teenagers and their families. The Kennedy klan has a long association with ARDOT (formerly the Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department). Maylays advertises to "Bring the Whole Gang" and apparently that is what the Kennedy klan did. Here are videos before the fight and of the fight. In the videos you can see the convicted felon Michael Kennedy brandishing a knife.     Here are three videos that show what happened after the fight. In one of the videos you can see Kennedy holding a knife and then secreting it in a females rear pant pocket.     Michael Drew Kennedy was sentenced in 1999 to a 10 year prison sentence after he attacked a man with a knife at a club j

England High School teacher caught having sex with a 18 year old former student in a car in a park

England High teacher Courtani Bell and former student Kaylin Sullivan   On Monday January 8, 2024 at around 6 p.m., an England, AR cop caught Courtani Bell (W/F 29) a teacher at England High School engaged in "public sexual indecency" in the back seat of Bell's car in a public park with a former student, Kaylin Sullivan (B/F 18).   Here's the police report.   The court date for the randy pair is set for February 22nd in England District Court. Bell is married (for the time being as a source says he's left her) and lives in Sheridan with her hubby Layton. Bell's cuckholded hubby works at the Sheridan Police Department as a cop.   Sullivan, will turn 19 in February 2024.   There are questions surrounding the commencement of their relationship and did it began when  Sullivan was a student? We reached out to the England School District for a comment. No response was received. ### Here's the police body camera footage of the arrest. Here's a shorter version

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
