State Police commander arrested in Fort Smith has resigned

Posted By on Fri, Sep 2, 2016 at 3:41 PM

Capt. Bryan Davis, who'd been a State Police troop commander in Fort Smith, has resigned following his arrest for loitering in a Fort Smith park.

Two Fort Smith undercover officers — a man and a woman — said they arrested Davis after he asked to watch them have sex in his truck. He was charged with misdemeanor loitering. A court appearance is scheduled next week.

The State Police issued this release:
Colonel Bill Bryant, Director of the Arkansas State Police has received a memorandum from Bryan Davis. The one sentence memo, dated September 2, 2016, signed by Davis states, “Please accept this as my letter of resignation from the Arkansas State Police to be effective immediately.”

The memo has been accepted by Colonel Bryant and will be forwarded to the department’s human resources section for processing.

“I am disappointed by the alleged incident that has led to this resignation,” said Colonel Bryant. “However, I believe it is of the utmost importance that we, as law enforcement officers, represent ourselves in an honorable and professional manner, and exhibit higher standards, both in our private lives and in our public duties, exceeding the principles and expectations of others.”
David, 51, had been a state trooper for 26 years. He was a civilian radio operator for two years before that.
