Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division have arrested two Clark County Jail employees who are charged with Battery (2nd degree).* LAW LESSON FOR KIM HAMMER: I mentioned this earlier, but here is Blue Hog Report's full explanation of just how comically wrong Rep. Kim Hammer was in saying during legislative debate today that the Tennessee Supreme Court had upheld the constitutionality of a pro-gay-discrimination bill similar to SB 202, approved in the House. Supreme Court didn't hear the case. The decision wasn't on the constitutionality of the law. In short, it didn't pass the "mustard test," as Hammer claimed.
William D. Sayre, 25, of Nashville and Robert L. Williams, 28, of Arkadelphia were taken into custody today following an investigation that began earlier this week at the request of Blake Batson, Clark County Prosecuting Attorney.
On or about February 9, 2015 Syre and Williams are accused of the battery of a jail inmate.
The Arkansas State Police investigation is continuing. Any questions relating to the administrative status of the two jailers should be directed to the Clark County Sheriff’s Department.
