SOUTHAVEN, MS (WMC-TV) - A Southaven alderman was arrested Monday night in DeSoto County on charges of driving under the influence.

Rickey Jobes was pulled over and arrested around 7:30 p.m. Monday near the I-69/I-55 interchange.

Jobes was charged with driving under the influence, careless driving, and failure to signal. Much of the other information contained in Jobes' arrest report was redacted before the report was released to Action News 5.

Jobes was later released from jail, but it is unclear if he was bonded out.
