A Union man with a history of violence was arrested again Saturday, this time for possession of methamphetamine.

Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell and two deputies were responding to a 911 call of gunshots around 4 a.m. Saturday morning when they arrested Justin Hagan, 39, of 10181 County Road 307 and charged him with one count of felony possession of meth.




The caller reported hearing the shots, possibly fired from a vehicle on County Road 307.

Upon investigation, Waddell said he and deputies Toby Clay and Gregg Tubby found Hagan in possession of a small amount of meth and several firearms.

Hagan was taken into custody without incident and nobody was injured.

Hagan remains behind bars at the Neshoba County Detention Center on a $7,500 bond.

Waddell said the incident is still under investigation and additional arrests or charges are possible.

The arrest is not Hagan’s first brush with the law. He was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault in July of 2012 for trespassing and disturbing the peace in February of 2015 and for simple assault in September of this year.
