  • DANIEL SUTTERFIELD: On trial.
The Baxter Bulletin provides detailed coverage of the trial of Bull Shoals Police Chief Daniel Sutterfield, accused of brutalizing a suspect in a domestic abuse case.

He took the stand in his own defense Thursday, perhaps not a good call given the report's account of how it gave the government a chance to highlight his checkered history — loss of a job for falsifying records; multiple workers comp claims; contradicted testimony about reports on the case at issue.

Sutterfield is on trial in federal court in Harrison for excessive force, falsifying statements and conspiracy. He Tased a suspect multiple times in responding to a domestic abuse report and also struck the man with a shotgun.
