 We posted about mercenary cop Myers back in March 2019 on social media.

Talley posted about his latest legal problem on Facebook.

We sent a FOI request to the Department of Finance and Administration for records regarding Talley.

Back in February, Talley was found guilty of violating an Order of Protection.

In May, the Arkansas Ethic Commission found that Talley violated the law by taking campaign funds for personal income and failing to file campaign finance reports.

Talley also faces several felony charges in Cross County.

A felony conviction would bar Talley from holding any public office in Arkansas.


We obtained LRPD reports regarding the arrest.
