JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — A Jackson attorney is upset after he says he was manhandled by Jackson Police Thursday night at Thalia Mara Hall.

Attorney Dorsey Carson was at the facility for a Bob Dylan concert.

Video of the incident was posted to Carson’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.

The video is captioned “Here is me getting manhandled by JPD after a buddy of mine turned on his phone at Bob Dylan.”
In the video, Carson is heard saying, “Lee Vance is getting this. No. No. Lee Vance is going to get this one.”

Carson told WJTV Friday that he has not yet filed a complaint with JPD, but he plans to talk to Chief Lee Vance.

JPD Commander Tyree Jones was reached by phone Friday.

He said Chief Vance had seen the video but, until a complaint is filed, the incident cannot be investigated.
