Little Rock, AR — Veteran Little Rock police officer Robert ‘Bobby’ Ward appeared to be enjoying a quiet peaceful night at his home this past summer when Sherwood police officers received a 911 call for a noise complaint. However, when the egos of the cops collided all hell broke loose.

When Sherwood police officers arrived, Ward and the officers both agreed they heard no noise coming from his home and Ward directed the two officers to another location “over there,” he said.

At first, the police contact was cordial. Ward was in his driveway, just outside his garage, on his own property, apparently minding his own business. But Sherwood officers pressed him for more information to fill out their “report,” one officer said.

Ward, who like so many residents who do not wish to have police contact, refused to answer the officers’ questions. “Why,” he asked when pressed for his phone number.

The two originally agreed there was no noise coming from Ward’s home and that should have been the end to the police contact. However the Sherwood officers kept insisting on information from Ward, and some could say, pressing his buttons.

The media edited out most of the body camera footage and even the footage we found was edited. However, during the entire incident, it appears the only thing Ward did to anger the Sherwood officers was curse at the police officers, something Arkansas courts have said is protected 1st Amendment speech.

Going further, Ward was on his own property, a contention he made with the rookie officers noting he had 22 years of police work under his belt.

One of the Sherwood officers warned him he would be arrested if he cursed again, something Ward knew was not illegal. So he cursed again, as many residents would, openly defying the perceived authority of his fellow badge-wearing boys in blue standing in his driveway seemingly provoking him.

The Sherwood officer even told Ward he would only give him “one warning” as if to say he would arrest him for cursing at him on his own property.

It must be worth noting the officers simply could have walked away had they been satisfied there was no noise coming from Ward’s home, and both officers agreed there wasn’t any. Why the officers remained on scene is a mystery to us here at TFTP.

However, when Ward called his fellow boys in blue “motherf–kers”, that was all the Sherwood officer needed to violently take ward to the ground, hitting his head on the sidewalk as he did.

For not cooperating with the police and their investigation of a noise complaint, for refusing to give the Sherwood officers any identifying information, and most notably, for cursing at the officers, Ward was given citations.

He was cited for “Public Intoxication, Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Arrest,” according to police records.

It’s unclear how anyone can get cited for being drunk on their own property but that’s what happened to Ward. Unfortunately, the cop who knew the actual law got fired from Pulaski County as a deputy as a result of his encounter with Sherwood police. He was accused of violating the Pulaski County code of contact, according to reports.

It’s very rare to catch police on police activity, especially on film, given the thin blue line and wall of silence. Ward, it seems, was completely within his rights to call the cops “f–kheads” and tell them to leave his property.

Unfortunately, it seems, free speech may truly be dead in America. If a man cannot say what he wants and express his feelings on his own property, where else is he able to practice such a right?

It’s unclear if Ward will be suing Sherwood and Pulaski police departments but we report on thousands of civil rights cases each year and we think he has a pretty strong one. What do you think? Was Officer Ward well within his rights to say whatever he wanted to the Sherwood cops? Should Pulaski have fired him? Like, comment, and share, below.

It’s unclear if Ward will be suing Sherwood and Pulaski police de departments

From another article:

"During the internal investigation, Ward stated that he takes full responsibility for what happened but also stated “The conduct is not me…that is not how I act. I don’t know what happened…”

After that statement, I doubt he'll be suing anyone for anything.

Oh, and " In August, Ward was fired from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office for violating three codes of conduct during the incident."

Sounds to me like the sheriff of Pulaski County or his immediate subordinates wanted to get rid of a veteran cop so he could hire a relative or a son-in-law or something similar.

Someone wanted to be rid of him. This was entirely cooked up. I'd be interested to find out who got his job once he was fired.

He should be suing for wrongful arrest and unlawful termination.

The entire Little Rock area is under corrupt police agencies. They have no credibility at all.

Is that how it "sounds" to you? You're hearing things.

"He should be suing for wrongful arrest and unlawful termination."

He said he took full responsibility for his actions. What do you think that means?

Absolutely, yes, he should proceed with this suit. I would also want to know who replaced him. Little Rock is known as a very corrupt town which includes those politicians running in. When I think of Little Rock, I remember the story of Mena, Arkansas and the cocaine trafficking during the 80's by Bill Clinton and the Bush connection.

[Article] Veteran Little Rock police officer Robert ‘Bobby’ Ward

[Tooconservative #2] Sounds to me like the sheriff of Pulaski County or his immediate subordinates wanted to get rid of a veteran cop so he could hire a relative or a son-in-law or something similar. ... The entire Little Rock area is under corrupt police agencies. They have no credibility at all.

NOTE: You could almost swear there was some Little Rock connection.

Robert "Bobby" Ward is not, and has never been, a Little Rock police officer with LRPD. For 20 years he was with the North Little Rock Police Department (NLRPD) until 2017. After that, he moved to the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office. The on duty officers involved were with the Sherwood Police Department.

North Little Rock is a seperate city, north of Little Rock and on the other side of the Arkansas River. Sherwood is north of North Little Rock. Jacksonville is north of Sherwood, and is where the local Pulaski County Sheriff's Department would be.

KTVO is some tv station in Missouri, ABC/CBS affiliate.
