HARRISBURG, AR (KAIT) - A city council meeting in one Poinsett County town didn't go the way those who attended thought it might.

Those in attendance expected police chief Gary Hefner to make his case on why he should stay on with the Harrisburg Police Dept.

However, the city council stuck to the agenda, which didn't include public comments, although one person was removed by police during the meeting.

After the meeting, Region 8 News spoke to the woman suspected of sexting with Hefner.

The woman said she's been approached by police regarding the matter, and added her and her husband said this stems from a disagreement within their family that got out of hand and led to this accusation, which she also says is false.
