JACKSON COUNTY -- An incident report from the Tuesday-night fight at a public meeting on Lake George identifies Realtor Elvis Mark Cumbest, former county supervisor candidate Sabrina Jean Smith and her father, Eddie Ray Manning, as offenders.
It also lists Cumbest and Smith as the victims.
The report was filed by a deputy who responded to the incident at the East Central Community Center about 6 p.m.
The deputy issued all parties involved a case number so they may pursue charges in Jackson County Justice Court if they choose. He said the charge would be misdemeanor simple assault.

As of noon Wednesday, no charges had been filed and no one had been arrested.
The incident report says the "altercation" was caught on video. In the video, the report says Cumbest is heard asking questions of someone named Jeff, then a "heated exchange" follows.
Smith is then seen walking from the back of the room, the report says. She walks past Cumbest and is heard calling for her father, Manning.
An argument ensues between Cumbest and Smith, who are heard telling each other to "sit down" and "shut up."
Smith asks Jackson County Supervisor Barry Cumbest to have Mark Cumbest removed from the meeting, then turns and walks toward where she had been sitting. As walks away, the report says, she can be heard saying, "He's a titty baby," and Mark Cumbest responds, "You are."
At that time, the report says, Mark Cumbest allegedly slaps Smith in the back of the head with the back of his hand.
The deputy said he could not tell from the video where Smith was allegedly struck. Mark Cumbest has said he didn't realize his hand had hit her.
It was then, the report says, she turns to him and says, "Oh, you don't f------ hit me" and slaps him in the face. At that point, the report says, Manning joins the fight and can be seen punching Mark Cumbest in the side of head.
Several people are seen separating the three, the report says.
Mark Cumbest, Smith and Manning each told deputies they had witnesses who would testify on their behalf.
The meeting was particularly volatile around the issue of what land the Cumbest family owns within the footprint of the Lake George project -- 2,900-acre twin lakes that would be formed by damming a tributary of the Pascagoula River.
This was the second of two meetings Barry Cumbest had set up to inform people about the project's impact in Jackson County and on the Pascagoula River.
