Co. administrator arrest, Board action stirs controversy
Tunica County administrator Michael Thompson was arrested last Wednesday, February 12, by local sheriff’s deputies and held in the Tunica County Jail for several hours on an outstanding warrant from another county.
Thompson, 36, was booked into the jail at 7:39 p.m. for driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license and on a warrant from Montgomery County for Failure to Appear.
According to a Feb. 13 release from the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department, Tunica County Justice Court Judge Louise Linzy confirmed the warrant with a judge in Montgomery County, but “an arrest warrant was not sent and Michael Thompson was able to post bond on the charge of driving while license suspended.”
