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.
