Hinds County Official Arrested

 Hinds County Director of Administration Stephen Hopkins was arrested today.  A Hinds County grand jury indicted him in October for embezzlement. Hopkins got into an auto accident this morning in Ridgeland. The police discovered there was an active  arrest warrant on the gentleman as the capias had not been served. 

Hinds County deputies arrested Hopkins and took him into custody.  More information will be posted as it becomes available.

How in the world does a person in a public job - at an "Administrator" level - not get arrested immediately after an arrest warrant is issued for them? Not like he was hard to find on his own LinkIn page and the county website.

Kenny Wayne sould be in jail over Canton Utilities, in my vew.

156, true. But besides 158's thought, whoever issued the warrant should be shamed as much as, or more so, than Hinds County.

To restate - how in the world does an entity issuing a warrant not do something to try to arrest the individual when they are so easily found?

Did they even TRY to locate him for the arrest warrant.

Good lord. How humiliating for law enforcement.

1:56, you noticed the arrest was by a Madison County LEO. Chances are no one in Hinds Co. gov't cares to check on these things if it means firing one of their own.

@2:28 Why waste the man hours to arrest someone on a non-violent misdemeanor when you know they will be immediately released? Non-violent misdemeanors do not go to jail in Hinds County. He would be arrested, booked, and released with a summons to come to court.

From the Mississippi Rules of Criminal Procedure:

Execution of Arrest Warrant, Return.

(1) By Whom. The arrest warrant shall be directed to and may be executed by any officer authorized by law within the State of Mississippi.

There are a whole lot of Barneys out there not doing their jobs, especially the ones hanging around the courthouses and LEO offices not doing anything.

When I saw this headline,
I honestly thought David L. would be the subject.

Wait, are you saying he is the current director or administration and has an embezzlement charge pending?

The Sheriff knew about a warrant for Polo but not for the Director of Administration. Go figure…..

In the least the sheriff could've served him the indictment thru inner-office memo or just emailed it to him. I would suspect the warrants division serving indictments has their hands full with the violent ones and these non-violent felonies aren't high priority

Are you serious? How can he be hired with a warrant out on him? Let me guess, he was hired by a pal or buddy!! Hinds County sucks period!!

I know this guy from school. “Hypocrite” always call other people crooks when he is the ring leader!!!!! Sad!!!!!!

County Cletus said...

Was he in his county issued $100,000 jacked up F150? I cannot understand how she had white has not descended on Hinds county and busted everyone a sorry son of a bitches for stealing federal money. And the HAVE done just that !!!

Stepen Hopkins is Kenny Wayne Jones assistant, they are frat Brothers and they both are corrupted. Hopkins talk crazy to elected officials and treat women in Hinds County like they not humans. Credell Calhoun and Kenny Wayne has been trying to take the bank account from Eddie Jean Carr, and has now hired a firm out of Florida to take over payroll. Hinds County needs to clean house, and Marshand needs to be asked, why wasn't Stephen Hopkins served in indictment. Kenny Wayne is riding around in a 80k Hemi Truck on tax payers back. Stephen had an accident in Madison County in a Hinds County vehicle. Nothing will be done, cause Kenny Wayne knows Hopkins knows about the Brown bag.

Wait, how is the clown working for the county when he has an arrest warrant?

Calling Jackson/Hinds County a third world country is an insult to third world countries.

*Hinds County Director of Administration*

The position, created by the Mississippi Legislature, exists in 82 counties. The proper title is County Administrator.

Anonymous said...

The media is reporting that the arrest warrant was for embezzling at a credit union. Kenny Wayne stated that the the warrant did not show up in a background investigation. LOL.

"Is he eligible for rehire?"



"We can't say - personnel matter." Ding, ding, ding.

Kenny Wayne, is your boy suspended? Does he have access to county funds? Who is paying to repair the county car? After wrecking one car did y'all give him another one?

3:08 AM, that's pretty late at night to be posting about Hinds County. Regardless, Kenny Wayne is the "County Administrator" and this guy reports to him as the Director of Administration.

More have happened under Credell Calhoun leadership then in the history of Hinds County. I'm wondering will there be any more indictments out of Hinds County. Credell's nephew Leroy Lee and Kenny Wayne Jones are the county's lunatics.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
