Hour 1

Director, Legally Insane Films Producer, Moving Stills Media Professor, Journalism 7 Documentary Studies

Millions in missing tax revenue, murder plots between politicians, a corrupt council using the chief to silence dissenters – the constitutional crisis that befell this tiny, American town was defeated by the only linchpin that once united us: diversity and open government. Quartzsite, Arizona, offers a cautionary tale of unchecked power, and the strength of the American Spirit that inspired a few dissenters, armed with the power of the press, to uproot decades of corruption.

This is a story that could heal a nation in turmoil.


When a town spends its first three decades trudging through corruption, embezzlement, false arrests and gag campaigns, and finally arrives at a place where order is kept and civil rights are affirmed, Quartzite's story is an anthem to the American way.

Just ten years after the conviction of its mayor on murder conspiracy charges, big money is coming up missing. A sergeant loyal to his oath, and a new mayor pushing for answers, fight independently but for the same goal – to uncover the truth. The residents who ask questions are falsely jailed, forcing the town onto the pages of Orwellian prophesy. The cops mutiny the chief and are fired for speaking out. Under armed guard, the council holds a closed-door meeting to oust the mayor, declare Martial Law, and turn over complete power to the police chief.

In the midst of chaos, the dissenter's voices finally reached America's media and attracted an armed march on Town Hall, made only more raucous by the Oath Keepers. And when the dust settles, the residents are left to pick up the pieces of an embattled town. But what happened to the money?

With a nation still wrenching in turmoil from corruption that climbs all the way to the top, this town's short but fiery history sets the stage for a modern day western as incendiary as the setting sun – its final, gleaming light soberingly exposing the dark underbelly of dirty politics, unchecked power and out of control policing.

Chief Will Ponce interviews with Legally Insane Films for the documentary, Big Trouble in Little Quartzsite, February 15, 2019

For the last two years, the crew from Legally Insane Films has followed this story, and the story of mayors, council members, attorneys, judges, cops, and others who say they've been targeted as well. We've gathered hundreds of court documents, audio and video surveillance, body-camera footage, archival news and radio bytes, piled through thousands of newspaper articles and interviewed nearly 70 witnesses across 11 Arizona towns. 

It's a big story that takes lots of turns and spans 30 years. Legally Insane Films, LLC., holds the story rights to what we hope will turn out to be a catalog of media that emerges from this long and detailed battle that has "more conspiracies than popcorn at the circus," as Dennis Wagner, reporter for the Arizona Republic, admitted during his interview. We're hard at work writing a book, and have already released the first eight episodes to the podcast (available below), and we hope to make a four- to six-part miniseries from the mass of content we couldn't squeeze into the feature!

While the nation grips their armchairs, suspended in a flurry of headlines exposing police brutality, the abuse of authority and systemic corruption that goes all the way to the top, Quartzsite has already seen it all. Since its roots in 1800's wild west politics, this tiny, desert town of only 3,500 residents showcases the entire life cycle of the same scandal currently rocking our nation. The beginning, middle and end of this tragedy comes to a close precisely as one might imagine for a community that's taken the gloves off and gone straight for the throat for decades. The microcosm of a rampage gone viral is no stranger to Quartzsite, but it is a story we desperately need to learn from.
