Sources Say City Attorney Impersonates Cop at AMP Concert

BENTON COUNTY, AR -- Rogers City Attorney Ben Lipscomb is under investigation for impersonating a police officer.

According to multiple sources, Lipscomb flashed a badge at the Miranda Lambert concert on July 12. Those sources said Lipscomb asked for access to the VIP section of the Walmart AMP, telling a concert employee he was an undercover cop. He was then allowed to enter the VIP section.

"Our employee acted in accordance with our policies, guidelines and rules of the AMP," a spokesperson for Walmart AMP said of the reported incident, in a statement.

Rogers Mayor Greg Hines said Crawford County Prosecutor Marc McCune will handle the case.

"We received the complaint and forwarded it to the Benton County Prosecutor," Hines wrote in a statement to KNWA/Fox 24. "An investigation was conducted and the file was sealed awaiting the appointment of a special prosecutor. It would be inappropriate for me to comment any further at this time."

Lipscomb was also recently involved in a lawsuit against the City of Rogers, after he gave the green light to the firing of then-City Treasurer Jerry Hudlow. That lawsuit cost the city more than $630,000. CLICK HERE to read more.

Bob McMahan, director of the Arkansas Prosecutors Coordinator's Office, selected McCune as special prosecutor.
