Fired Cop Dies after Attacking Police Corruption Blogger’s Hot Dog Stand

Ean Bordeaux, a Little Rock police-corruption blogger (and hot dog vendor) was the victim of an arson attack this morning at his home at 1510 of Bragg street in Little Rock (just south of Macarthur park).


Corruption blogger, Ean Bordeaux at this day job as hot dog entrepreneur.

According to Ean, he awoke at 4:00 am to the sound of his dogs barking. Looking at his security monitors, he saw that his hot dog cart in his yard was on fire. He rushed down to put out the flames which were now lapping against his house and threatening his cart’s propane tank. Ean burned his hands putting out the fire, and immediately called the police. Fifteen minutes later, watching his video monitor while waiting for police to arrive, he saw a man approach the cart (apparently for a second time). The unidentified man then began pouring lighter fluid onto the cart. Ean ran down the stairs and confronted the man, who then ran. He noticed that the man was wearing a hat and a mask. Ean chased down and tackled him. The masked man landed face-first onto the pavement, and they both then laid there catching their breath. Ean claims that he didn’t strike the man, but since he feared the man might have a weapon, he continued to hold the suspect down until police arrived. The masked man died shortly thereafter.

The masked man turned out to be ex-LRPD police officer Todd Payne, who had been a subject of Ean’s blog investigation at Corruption Sucks. Ean claims that Todd had been harassing him for some time due to his posts and that he and Todd had worked in close contact for several years in the River Market area. (Ean’s hot dog cart was on a corner in Todd’s Rivermarket beat).

The LRPD sent the following press release, which doesn’t conflict with Ean’s narrative.

“1510 Bragg Street. Around 0400 hours Ean Bourdeaux called 911 in reference to someone attempting to destroy his property (hot dog cart).  The suspect left and later returned attempting to damage the property a second time.  Mr. Bourdeaux confronted the suspect, whom was still next to the property.  The suspect fled on foot and was caught by Bourdeaux within a short distance.  Details are limited, but while Bordeaux was engaged with suspect, the suspect sustained injuries that later lead to his death at a local hospital.  The suspect was later identified as Todd Payne, former Little Rock Police Officer.  The investigation is ongoing and no additional information is available.”

To this point, police have expressed no intention of charging Ean with a crime.

As you would expect, police were not happy to hear that an ex-LRPD cop had done this. Here is a snippet of an overheard police radio conversation from around 5:00 AM this morning: “This is going to put a lot of us in jeopardy with his stupid action.” “Yeah, that idiot dead dude just put us in a lot of danger doing that crap.”

What Cheer? Brigade


Little Rock needs more stuff like this. This 2009 parade, which coincided with Hillcrest Shop & Sip, processed from The House GastroPub to the Arkansas School for the Deaf. It was led by the Providence R.I. band called “The What Cheer? Brigade”. Maybe you were there.

The first video was taken by “Andy”. I don’t have his last name yet.

Burglary ends with police shooting/killing suspect at 14th and Brown street. Here is 2 minutes of edited police radio which starts with an officer investigating a burglary and ends with the aftermath of the shooting. (The Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports that the suspect who was shot has died.) More stuff.



Below you will find the office police press release on the matter


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                       Contact: Sgt. Cassandra Davis

On Friday, January 11, 2013, the Little Rock Police Department received information that two individuals had broken into a residence and were returning to that residence to remove property.  The Department was not provided with the specific address of this residence, only the general area of town.

Detectives from the Department’s Special Investigations Division and property crimes Detectives from the Department’s Downtown Division searched this area and at approximately 9:40 a.m. located the burglary at the west side of the duplex at 4521 W. 16th Street, observing an individual loading items taken from the residence into a gray Toyota Camry driven by a second person.  As this vehicle pulled away from the residence (with both individuals now inside), the Detectives followed it and attempted to arrange for a marked patrol unit to assist in stopping it.  Prior to the arrival of a marked unit, the suspect vehicle stopped just off the alley west of 1418 S. Brown and both individuals exited the vehicle and ran.  1418 S. Brown is only a random address for which the suspects decided to stop.

According to the Detectives, they gave chase to both individuals and, during the course of this, one individual stopped, appeared as if he was surrendering, and then charged and fought with a pursuing Detective.  This struggle continued for a few moments, during which time the suspect knocked the Detective down and attempted to take control of his handgun.  A second Detective now approached, attempted to assist and, believing that the suspect was about to acquire the first Detective’s weapon, fired at the suspect from his own weapon.  The suspect was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene.  The second individual was arrested without incident by other officers in the area.

The deceased has been identified as Michael W. Daniel 2nd, age 25, of 1504 S. Pine.  The second individual, identified as Marcus Davis, age 26, of 4115 S. Malloy, has been charged with Capital Murder, Burglary, Theft, and Fleeing.

Pursuant to Little Rock Police Department General Orders, two separate investigations have been initiated into this matter.  The first, conducted by the Department’s Major Crimes Division, will be submitted to the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office when completed for a review and determination as to compliance with Arkansas law; the second, conducted by the Department’s Professional Standards Section, is charged with determining whether the Detectives involved acted in accordance with Departmental policies.

Both Detectives have been placed on administrative leave as required by Departmental policy and the investigations are continuing in this matter.  One Detective received minor injuries during the struggle which do not appear to require hospitalization.

Additional information will be made available by the Department as the investigations continue.

Witness calls for help on injured officer’s mic



According to police, Donovan Fulton, age 33, of Hirschy Lane, ran over police officer Linda Allen after she caught him shoplifting a bottle of wine at the Valero on Stagecoach around noon today. A witness aided the injured officer and called for assistance on the officer’s radio. Within 30 minutes police had tracked down the suspect at an Exxon station on Scott Hamilton/I-30 where police say he was demanding beer and cigarettes from a clerk at knife point. He was arrested and charged with a few felonies including first degree battery and robbery.

Listen to 3 minutes of interesting, condensed police audio in which a good Samaritan picks up the injured officer’s mic and calls for assistance from police: Here’s The Audio

By the end of this short audio (edited down from 25 minutes of real-time police radio) they have their suspect in custody. I’m told that the injured officer has a concussion and is staying the night in hospital for observation.
