Miriam Holder returns to Lumberton City Hall

LUMBERTON, MS (WDAM) - It was a packed house Tuesday night at Lumberton City Hall as Mayor Miriam Holder returned after her felony obstruction of justice arrest.

Police were present as Holder's supporters lined the room. One man was even escorted out after shoving Lumberton Police Chief, Dennis Hobson. 

A local preacher was the only one who addressed the giant elephant in the room.  The reverend stated to the board "I've been in Lumberton all of my life, and the way Lumberton is going now...it's not the Lumberton I was raised and brought up in."
