Well, really, who doesn't prefer a grilled dog to one that's been festering in that stinky water?

You've got to be a real charmer if they know you as "Creepy Todd" in Arkansas.

I'm sorry a man had to die for a bad idea, but this seems almost entirely self-inflicted on Creepy Todd's part.

He quickly realized, however, that the dead man was former LRPD officer Todd "Creepy Todd" Payne

I'm getting really sick of guys named Todd.

And here I was getting my hopes up that the guy accidently lit himself on fire in the process.  Instead it's just a simple "got tackled and landed just the wrong way".

It probably wasn't the first time that he was outsmarted by a hot dog cart, and frankly, I am guessing that he was getting sick of it.

I checked out the bloggers site, he is Really into outing corruption. Fair warning, his site has pictures of a cop's wang that the cop was sexting to harass some females.

Apparently, the blogger has ruined the careers of more cops than just Creepy Todd. A follow up might be warranted, just to see if the police try to get some payback, and charge the blogger with a crime.

  Yeah. The comments are priceless. Buddies describing what this Todd guy did as a "prank", about shooting at the guys house for fun on other occasions, how the hot dog guy needs to be killed, etc.
  I have a feeling no one on the force is letting this guy live his life peacefully after this.

According to another article, it seems like he was arrested but then released while the prosecutor prepares charges.

Is that something that happens normally?

Also, does it count as capital murder in Arkansas if you kill an ex-cop, or only a current LEO?

This could launch a "Creepy Todd" slasher movie franchise, for all we know. Creepy Todd slashes and sets fire to various street merchants and their belongings in an orgy of mayhem and destruction; comes back from the grave over and over again.

The article says:
"Right now, he (Bordeaux) was released without charges and the file is being reviewed by the prosecuting attorney's office and based on what they find then they will determine if there is anything worthy of charging Mr. Bordeaux for," said Allen."

Here's something that doesn't really add up:

So the now-dead guy set the cart on fire.  The blogger calls 911, puts the fire out himself, and 15 minutes later apparently no police or firemen have responded to his 911 call, since the now-dead guy came back to try again.  That's shady as hell for somebody.

I'm thinking this blogger has managed to piss off a lot of people in his anti-corruption efforts, so now nobody bothers coming to his aid (which seems like it would be a crime in itself).

 A prosecutor always has to review any case to see if charges are warranted, it is they who decide whether or not to prosecute, not the cops. The police could have been holding him on reasonable suspicion, but its still up to the DA to charge or not. The fact that they aren't holding him shows there is not any clear evidence of any wrongdoing on his part.
 A person can be held by the police and the prosecutor can decline to charge at all, or the police may not arrest someone at the time but the prosecutors findings later bring them file charges. Either is possible, they are two separate things.

Yea, but he was killed by some guy over a hot dog cart.
Who's going to compensate the cart owner for his damages?
 
2014-04-21 11:12:47 AM  
So the would-be arsonist came back 15 minutes later.  That was never going to end well.

Here's ex-cop Todd "Creepy-Todd" Payne who died in the incident.  He has high school hall-monitor with a napoleon complex written all over his face.

Being tackled to death is a fitting-end to an arsonist who tries to blow-up somes house.

Apparently the downside to getting abunch of corrupt cops and public officials fired is that the police don't show up to your house for at least 15 minutes after you dial 911 and report that someone is trying to light your propane tanks on fire in a resedential area.

Sounds like there are more Arkansas po-po that need to be kicked-off the force and not be allowed to work in the public sector, ever.

I'm guessing the DA won't charge Bordeaux.  I doubt they want any more media attention.  I'm going to bookmark his blog and if he gets charged, hopefully he'll get a donations link going for his defense.

Doesn't all of that normally happen post-arraignment?  I thought the Police could hold you for 48-72 hours before starting that clock and involving the DA at all.

Arkansas pikers. If it was in Chicago the dude would already be in jail for manslaughter and due to hang himself in his cell in a few hours.

What is it with the South, corrupt public officials, blogs, and connections to dogs?

A more high-profile case has been a blogger who runs the site Legal Schnauzer who was thrown in jail for 5 months for being critical of Alabama's "Big Bob" Riley and his ilk.

All I can say is that if you're a blogger in the South and focused on political topics... take on a pseudonym that leads your enemies to someone you already don't like.
