Receipts: Southaven mayor a big tipper on city tab

Southaven Mayor Greg Davis Southaven Mayor Greg Davis

(AP) - Receipts show Southaven Mayor Greg Davis often left generous tips when he was charging meals and drinks to the city.

The Mississippi auditor has demanded Davis repay more than $170,000 for personal expenses billed to taxpayers. The Commercial Appeal used a Freedom of Information request to obtain Davis' receipts that the auditor gave Southaven officials.

The newspaper reports that he left a $100 tip for a $38 dinner last June at Mesquite Chop House in Southaven. A month later, he bought a $37 round of beers at the restaurant and tipped $100.

After a dinner for legislators and attorneys at Mint Restaurant in Ridgeland, Davis left a $1,000 tip on a $2,509 bill. That dinner included two bottles of Opus One wine for $415 each.
