JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) — Security escorted a man out of the ballroom at the King Edward Hotel in Jackson Tuesday night at the election night event for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jim Hood.
At first glance, it appeared on camera that the candidate himself had been attacked.
However, another camera angle revealed that Hood was not the man being restrained. Hood was close to the man when confronted.
WTVA's Erin Wilson reported the man had been belligerent to the news media throughout the night.
