SOUTHAVEN, MS (WMC) - The city of Southaven held a special election Tuesday to replace an alderman arrested several months ago.
After no clear winner was decided, the vote will go to a runoff.
Charlie Hoots and Greg Paylor finished in the top two spots, but neither had at least 50 percent of the vote.
The runoff for Ward 2 will be held March 6.
Ronnie Hale, who represented Ward 2, was arrested for hiring prostitutes in November.
A month later, he was again arrested for transporting child pornography.
After the second arrest, he resigned from his position.
