Warrant issued for Mayflower Police Chief

Posted: Updated:

A warrant has been issued for Mayflower Police Chief Billy Paul Baker in connection with fraud involving the submission of paperwork for certification testing.

According to an affidavit, a Mayflower officer made a complaint to the Arkansas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards saying he had never attended a radar certification class that was supposed to be given by Baker and fellow officer Kyle Watkins. When a request was made by CLEST for the certification, Baker provided documents stating that seven officers had attended the class, but representatives from CLEST made inquiries and found out that at least two officers did not attend the class. 

Baker later said in a news release that "they held radar training and all but two officers on the roster attended." He said he turned in a full roster but the problem was fixed once they found the mistake.
