JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

With campaign season in full swing, one Moss Point mayoral candidate found himself behind bars Thursday night. 

According to Moss Point Police Chief Calvin Hutchins, Timothy DuBose was pulled over on Main Street for a minor traffic violation. Although DuBose was reportedly not drunk, there was a mixed drink inside of the vehicle.

DuBose allegedly became hostile and would not cooperate with the officer. After getting out of his car and refusing to get back in, DuBose was arrested.

He was taken to the Jackson County Adult Detention Center and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and an open container violation. DuBose bonded out of jail at 5:38 a.m. Friday, and will appear in municipal court. 

WLOX News Now is working to learn more about his arrest, and what it means for his bid for mayor.

    The Mississippi State Legislature is back in session and as usual a fight is brewing over money. Still unresolved is what to do with  $750 million coming from BP over 17 years because of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil disaster. To the people here on the coast, there is no question that all of the money should be spent on projects in South Mississippi. But so far, the powers in Jackson and the rest of the state won't agree to that.
