JJ may be very sorry. I guess only he and God know that, though. How very sad for the 70 year old man that was arrested just for defending himself. Where's the apology to him? As for the preacher that prays daily with JJ, I hope he sees something the rest of us don't.........a man! What a sorry excuse. JJ, you should have called for prayer before you acted so irresponsibly.

@guest3, Don'r call all of us stupid. Not everyone voted for him.what we can hope for is that enough people will go for a recall, or that JJ will straighten up and fly right.

J.J. Hudson is the worst kind of hypocrite that there is. He subscribes to the idea that he can do as he wishes, as long as he shows up in church and prays for forgiveness. If he was really the good Christian man that he proclaims himself to be he would not be driving drunk to go across town to try to beat up a senior citizen. I don't understand how so many people can keep defending him.
A leader is supposed to lead by example, and the "Mayor" of Flippin obviously lacks the majority of the qualities a leader should have. This is not the first time he has put himself in a situation like this, and probably won't be the last. But as long as he has his religion to hide behind everything will be just fine.

To guest 3, don't call all of us stupid. Not everyone voted for him. Most people voted for him just to get the former Mayor out.

They have to wait till a major re election, to have a recall, they have to do it so many days before the next election, which is next year, there are rules, and you have to follow rules, or you'll end up with a bigger mess, and those who do not follow rules are people like our mayor.

Just so everyone knows, it is very apparent to those of us with half a brain and/or intelligence of computer technology that there are comments on SEVERAL different postings in this forum as well as some surrounding community forums submitted by the same person using MULTIPLE USERNAMES in order to,(I assume), sway the public view and opinion to their side of the fence. In my opinion, this act is just as guilty of telling a bald faced lie and deceiving their own community. I suggest this website only accept 1 username per INTERNET PROTOCOL ADDRESS unless each individual is willing to submit their actual names to each assumed username in that household. Don't make me point fingers and call out names but I will if this continues!!! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!

Am I out of line to say.....does it occur to anyone that the council may not have cared for our "previous" mayor?? Could this be why they are not acting the way most people posting seem to want them to and beat the heck out of JJ ? "Guest 3", out of Harrison, please stay out of it. Leave it to the people of Flippin, who are city residents, like myself....and let us deal with it. Looks to me, at this point we have NO choice but to deal with the current mayor and hope he follows through with his promise. IF he doesn't, there is no doubt the people will act. For now, NONE of us posting seem to know what really happened, and probably never will. The arrest record is public, and I plan to get my hands on it, I'd like to know what happened. It may or may not help me decide how to vote next year.
But let's all be clear here, aside from this HUGE mistake he made, using the Lords name and sobriety in the same sentence to get votes, all I hear are good things about JJ and how he treats his employee's....time will tell. Sincerely, an Ozark Luvva

Here is my opinion. No matter who gets elected as mayor they will no doubt be crooked and dishonest. Thats just the way it goes. He had every right to drink alcohol, he just should have known better than to be out running around while intoxicated. Nobody is perfect, but these same people who are out making their mistakes are sitting back passing judgement on every one else. This town looks for something or someone to gossip about. So no matter who is mayor someone will find fault in their doings, and take it upon themselves to spread the word.
