Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny Dupree refused to answer questions from a person reporting for the website the Hattiesburg Patriot.

When pressed on the issue Mayor Dupree, a former Democrat candidate for governor, smacked the camera before his assistant, identified as Shenika Hughes, tried to block the camera lense from videoing as Mayor Dupree stormed away.

The questions were regarding permits and a situation at the Hattiesburg lagoon, an ongoing problem for the city for several years. Residents have complained of the stench for years.
