Paul Fred Dumas was arrested on July 10, 2020 and charges with 7 counts of delivery of a controlled substance and a confidential informant ("CI") working with the Morrilton Police Department made controlled buys.

The Prosecuting Attorney for the 15th Judicial District, Tom Tatum, also filed a complaint to seize assets of Dumas.

Back in 2012, Dumas was the chairman of the Arkansas Ethics and he was charged with domestic battery after beating his wife.

Notice how the city attorney at the time, Bart Virden, tried to whitesplain away the domestic violence. 

To make matters worse for Dumas, he wife filed for divorce in July.
