Darr: Arkansas State Police Sometimes Drive Him

Arkansas Lt. Gov. Mark Darr says State Police sometimes drive him between his Springdale home and sites around the state so he can talk on his cellphone without endangering himself or others.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports since ending his bid for Congress in August, Darr has been chauffeured at least four times on long-distance trips at taxpayer expense.

State Police once drove Darr and Darr’s son roughly 240 miles from Springdale to Jefferson County so Darr could do the coin toss before a high school football game.

Afterward, Darr was flown home in a state-owned airplane at taxpayer expense.

Darr told the newspaper that there are times when he chooses not to drive while talking on his cellphone, and so he uses the State Police for transportation.
