Escorted From County Property: Yazoo Supervisor Says The County Was Spending Too Much

YAZOO CITY, Miss.–Escorted by the sheriff off of county property where road equipment is kept, Yazoo County Supervisor Caleb Rivers said he believed the county was about to spend too much on new equipment.

So, he staged a protest Monday morning….

…Monday morning, when the equipment was set to be sold, he locked a gate and jumped up in one of the trucks and refused to get out. That’s when the sheriff was called in to escort him off the property, and he complied. A video of the event was posted to Facebook by Mickey Rivers, Caleb Rivers’ father.
