Thompson case held for 180 days
The charge of disturbing the peace against Tunica County administrator Michael Thompson was “remanded” for 180 days in municipal court Monday.
Prosecutor Chuck Graves told Judge Jim McGarrh that comptroller Adrian McKay brought the original report to the city but had indicated that he now wanted to drop the charges. Graves, however, said he was reluctant to do so because McKay’s report made mention of a weapon.
“It’s my recommendation that the charges be remanded to the file for 90 days, and if there are no other problems, the charges can then be dropped,” Graves said.
“The thing about remanding...if there are future problems, it can be brought back up,” Judge McGarrh said.
