CLARKSDALE, Miss. (WMC) - A man who investigators believe made a threatening voicemail to the mayor of Clarksdale has been arrested.

Joseph Pittman is charged with felony eluding a law enforcement officer after being arrested late Tuesday night.

He was also arrested on a warrant for stalking. Officials say the voicemail also threatened other people, but their names are not being released.
