UPDATE: WREG has updated their original report:

“Preliminary information suggested a local gardener was working in a subdivision when he was trying to get to a lawn to mow the lawn.

“According to the man Senator Massey’s truck was blocking the roadway, but he refused to move it.

“Words were exchanged and that’s when Massey allegedly pulled out a shovel.”

WREG reports that Mississippi lawmaker Senator Chris Massey has been arrested on assault charges in Olive Branch.

The Olive Branch Police Department confirmed they are processing Senator Chris Massey on charges of felony aggravated assault.

His bond was set at $10,000.

Geoff Pender at the Clarion Ledger reports Massey was arrested after “a fight with two other men in which Sen. Massey allegedly assaulted the men with a shovel.”
