I heard rumors that a local preacher was busted in a sting operation at the rest area between Clarksville and Russellville. I did some searching on the web and found three articles in the Russellville Courier confirming that Ron (Ronnie) Townley, 51, of Ozark, was arrested and plead guilty to charges stemming from a sting operation at the rest area last June (2006). It's seven months later, how is this man still preaching?

I heard that a leadership council (comprised of Apostolic Ministers )was being convened to get this guy off the hook.
Why don't they judge each other like they would judge gay saints, and just kick them out without any compassion or dignity.. I saw kick him out and let him deal with his stuff like the saints have to...

You must not know what a charismatic church is..He is one of the most conservative churches in arkanas....

The man was never charged...it was a farce from the lovely russelville police force....

He was charged with loitering, and having a loaded weapon in his truck. He plead guilty to the weapon change and they dropped the loitering charge. Its called plea bargaining. All criminals do it.

There is a web site going up that will have the police report and court documents. Which are all public info under The U.S. Freedom of Information Act.
One of the conditions of his plea was being "banned from all rest areas"

He was stopped at a rest stop with other people in his truck. he was NOT busted for the loitering ,nor done any plea bargaining. he volunteered the info on the pistol. still carries it far as i know. the cop followed him all the way to his truck trying to offer him lewd acts! he made the cop mad, so he wouldnt let him go. he simply stopped to go to the restroom like we all do in our 50s, about every 30 minutes. he is being harrassed by local UPC preachers because he IS conservative.and police because he IS conservative.

being involved with a municipal court i find it humorous that they can charge you with whatever they want. and usually make it look good.sometimes even making it stick. you dont anger or try to get even with the police, you will go down! i know he suggested the cop was an idiot.it doesnt go over very well to do that.especially the elite undercovers. especially in podunk ark. he wanted to bust every male that stopped to pee. if its in the paper ,you should get facts elsewhere.the locals are not the ones to get it from.

common sense , drunk? no. have you been around the sheriffs office much? if you have a screwdriver in your trunk?=concealed weapon. hair clip, paper clip, small mirror, tweezers?=drug paraphernalia. anything to cover for their harassment.that is to insure a reason for detaining you in the first place. thats not just my opinion, i dont even like the fact that it happens, but its too common.the police are not superhuman beings,just normal,common ,everyday people. some cant get a job doing anything else because they cant interact with the general population.most have a self esteem problem and try to bring everyone else down to their level. they are not perfect, they will do what they want when you make them look stupid in front of someone. then it gets in the papers.the average citizen believes everything he reads in the local rag. notice most of these comments start with "i heard". well, i "heard" from his own wife, which seen it, that the cop followed him to the truck. he made the cop look stupid in front of others. they think they are the law. the "law" said, "if you push this we will ruin you". ask his wife, she heard it.the best part is,in spite of others spreading rumors and lies, his church is doing great, probably better this year than ever.we will see what the future holds.
