JACKSON, Miss. — The city of Jackson is rejecting The Clarion-Ledger's (http://on.thec-l.com/19fY1JV ) request for the incident report following last month's arrest of state Sen. John Horhn on a DUI charge.
Mississippi law says incident reports are public.
The move comes after WAPT-TV obtained the document, which indicates the Jackson Democrat shouted at the officer who arrested him.
WAPT reported that among other things, Horhn yelled, "Do you know who I am? You are going to lose your job."
Responding Tuesday to a Nov. 19 request, an assistant city clerk writes City Attorney Latrice Westbrook is withholding the report or any video because the case remains under investigation.
Westbrook says the report was given to WAPT without authorization.
James Hendrix, who runs the Jackson Jambalaya blog, says his request was also denied.
