Commissioner arrested during meeting in Marshall

Local News

A city commissioner was arrested Wednesday night for disrupting a meeting held by the Marshall Police Department, No Colors No Labels and Marshall Against Violence.

These organizations held a meeting with the aim of answering questions and interacting with officers in an effort to build a stronger bond with the community.

During the question and answer portion of the meeting, Commissioner Michael Mitchell, 40, entered the meeting and proceeded to interrupt the meeting and caused a “breach of peace.” This caused the meeting to stop until order could be restored, police say.

Mitchell was asked to leave, but refused. Police had to physically remove him from the meeting.

He was arrested for disrupting a meeting or procession and booked into the Harrison County Jail. 

According to KMHT, Mitchell’s bond was set at $1,500. He will also not be able to participate in or attend any town hall meetings involving the city of Marshall. He will still be able to attend regular meetings of the city commission.
