HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - A Reform Party candidate for Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District seat has been freed on bond after being arrested on a simple domestic violence charge.

Hattiesburg police spokesman Lt. Jon Traxler tells WDAM-TV in Laurel (https://bit.ly/1DCI9Aj ) that 57-year-old Eli Jackson was arrested Monday on an outstanding warrant.

Traxler says the warrant is linked to a May 2014 domestic violence incident in Hattiesburg.

Jackson is one of five candidates challenging Republican incumbent Steven Palazzo in the Nov. 4th general election.

Challengers in the Nov. 4 election facing Palazzo are Democrat Matt Moore, Libertarian Joey Robinson, and independents Cindy Burleson and Ed Reich.
