Hey, police reports are back, and in a big way. Ohhhhhh my but there were all sorts of shenanigans, especially out in the county.
Lots of damaged cars and a dog killing (RIP), but the best was the guy who let his ex-boss know just how he felt about getting canned. It was SO Mississippi.
Enjoy, my friends, this round of police reports from Tupelo and Lee County.
