Game & Fish Commission Releases Heavily-Edited Report on Encounter with Federal Marshal

JUNE 8, 2006 - Posted at 10:59 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A report has been released on a wildlife officer's encounter last year with a U.S. marshal who soon left his job.  But the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission blacked out virtually all of the details.

Ray Carnahan resigned April 28 after nearly four years as the U.S. marshal for the Eastern District of Arkansas.  The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported that his resignation was believed related to the encounter and the newspaper asked for the report under the state Freedom of Information Act.

The Commission refused to release the report until Attorney General Mike Beebe issued an opinion that the report was covered under the FOI act.

The report does say that Carnahan allegedly interfered with a law enforcement officer.
