The younger brother of Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott, Jr. has been charged with two counts of kidnapping and theft of property.Darrell Scott is accused of stealing a car from Baptist Health Hospital with two kids inside. As far as our sources know, the children were not related to Scott. The police report said Darrell called the kids’ parents from their phone, and said,

“Don’t worry I’m the mayor’s brother.

My heart went out to Mayor Scott posted when I read a statement he posted to Twitter saying:

“This is an extremely difficult season in the life of my younger brother. My family cares deeply about him, and we are seeking medical and professional help as he manages this crisis. My heart goes out to the children who were involved. While my life, in many regards, is public, my family members remain private individuals. I ask that you respect my families privacy and pray that my brother gets the treatment he needs and that justice is served.”

It sounds like there are some deeply rooted issues here with Mayor. Scott's younger brother. I, too, hope he gets the help he needs. Keep this family in your prayers.
