Hamm also known as Porkchop in the Ark-La-Tex was in a motorcycle wreck on August 19th, 2017 in Harrison County. He was air lifted to LSU-S and place in ICU, for several days. According to Detective Tyler Owen from the Marshall Police Department “He is a 15 year member of the Smithland Volunteer Fire Department and is very much community involved. Several of his close friends, me included, have put this benefit together to assist him financially during this difficult time.”
