Moss Point Police Chief Calvin Hutchins is resigning, Moss Point Mayor Mario King announced Friday.
WXXV-TV reported Hutchins’ decision on Friday.
King told the news station that Hutchins is pursuing a “better job opportunity.”
Hutchins took the helm of the Moss Point Police Department in March from interim Chief Brandon Ashley, who took over after Art McClung was fired after he was stopped by Pascagoula police for driving 109 mph after having “at least three vodkas,” the Sun Herald reported in September 2016.

The Sun Herald obtained dash-camera footage of the incident from two Pascagoula police vehicles. McClung was also seen passing people “on the right” side of the road.
McClung was initially handcuffed, but Pascagoula officers drove him home without citing or charging him.
