PINE BLUFF, AR – The Melton Township constable was arrested Thursday on rape charges. The charges stem from an alleged incident that happened 16 years ago with a then 11-year-old boy.
Bail for Thomas Eagle, 50, has not yet been set. He is in jail awaiting his first appearance in District Court.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says Eagle “was arrested following the collection of both tangible and non-tangible evidence.”
