OFF THE HOOK: Police Officer Joey Williams

Officer Joey Williams of the Hot Springs, Arkansas Police Department was cleared of any wrongdoing yesterday by an internal review board. You may remember him as the clown originally seen here.

According to Police Chief Bobby Southard, the incident “was a minimal force issue” and Williams “didn’t resort to anything above hand control techniques and handcuffing.” Southard also said Williams, who’d been placed on administrative leave, will return to bike patrol downtown on Thursday. Oh, but your complaints are still welcome…
