Prosecutor Clears Law Enforcement Officers


By Tammy Moore Teague
Sebastian County Prosecutor Dan Shue has ruled that the May 8 shooting, involving Hackett Reserve Officer Todd Johnson and Sebastian County Deputy Jason Morse, was justified.
The letter from the prosecutors office was sent to both Sebastian County Sheriff Bill Hollenbeck and Hackett Police Chief Darrell Spells. Shue stated in that letter that both Morse and Johnson responded reasonably.
On the evening of May 7, Johnson arrived to the 1100 block of Sunny Hill Place in Hackett, where he was met with gunfire. During the lengthy standoff, Peter Boden, 48, shot and injured three SWAT deputies. Boden continued to fire upon law enforcement officers as he attempted to reach his vehicle. It was at this time Morse fatally shot and killed Boden.
