I was greeted with a tip on my first day back from a long four day weekend in the North Georgia Mountains that Mississippi’s Prosecutors do not just fight crime, they evidently fight each other with last week’s brawl spilling out onto the Golden Nugget’s gaming floor. According to Slabbed’s sources it started with a Prosecutor from North East Mississippi and went down hill from there.
The Prosecutor Training Division of the Attorney General’s Office identifies, develops and implements training and resource programs for prosecutors within the State of Mississippi and their supporting personnel. In addition, this Division monitors criminal law as it develops in our State Legislature and alerts District Attorneys, City and County Attorneys, Youth Court Prosecutors and Special Assistant Attorneys General. Two major conferences and several customized training classes each year provide prosecutors with resources and information that are needed to help prosecutors protect the rights of our citizens who are victimized.
The 2018 Spring Prosecutors Conference offers Prosecutors twelve hours of continuing legal education, including one hour of ethics.
Speaking of how this started, word has filtered out in the legal community:

Sounds like someone got handsy after taking in the nice salt air down on the coast. In any event, anyone wanting to share everything they know about the fighting prosecutors is highly encouraged to do so in comments. For my friends in the media, I have been told arrests were made by the Biloxi PD so there is certainly a documentary public record on the incident.
