LITTLE ROCK, AR - Former Second District Congressman Tommy Robinson has been named by creditors in a petition to force him into bankruptcy.
Once a colorful and controversial Pulaski County Sheriff and now a farmer, Robinson was named along with his wife Carolyn in a petition filed March 25 at the Helena federal Bankruptcy Court.
Wildlife Farms Two LLC of North Little Rock, Boyd Rothwell of Little Rock and William AS-Thompson of North Little Rock filed the petitions. They listed claims against Tommy Robinson totaling nearly $180,000. The claims against his wife total more than $140,000.
The Robinsons may contest the petitions in the court. If they lose, they could have their assets liquidated and the proceeds distributed to the creditors.
