COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - Lowndes County Constable Hoot West had surgery on his wrist and hip Tuesday, according to his daughter's Facebook post.
"...they said it went fine," Debbie Edmondson said. "We have not been able to see him yet. They did add a broken sternum to the list...."
He will stay overnight in the intensive care unit at the Tupelo hospital.
