Nissan VP Arrested

The Madison Police Department issued the following statement. 


Phillip T. Calhoun, age 41, was arrested on 04/06/2019 for Simple Domestic Violence in the City of Madison, MS.  He received an initial court appearance yesterday, 04/7/2019 before Madison Municipal Court Judge John Reeves.  He received a $1,000 bond.  Upon posting bond Mr. Calhoun was released.  We do not verify employment of persons arrested by our agency.




Kingfish note: Nissan's website states:

Philip Calhoun is vice president, Manufacturing, Nissan Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant, a position to which he was appointed in September 2018. In this role, Calhoun is responsible for the operation of Nissan's vehicle assembly plant in Canton, Mississippi, including safety, quality, operations, productivity and environmental compliance.

What are the odds of being in a good relationship? There seems to be winner and a loser in every marriage at best and often 2 losers. But we have a lot of attorneys who would starve if not for divorce court.

So, I wonder. How does a police department decide when to issue a statement and when not? When they get a media inquiry?

This is so sad. I understand he was in line to replace Mr. Goshen.

MPD needs to upgrade the lighting for their mugshot machine.

"We do not verify employment of persons arrested by our agency."

This is very odd at the end of a MPD statement, or any PD statement? Do they do this on every one of them? And then to have KF, dig into his employment? Was that cryptic messaging from MPD for someone to dig into his employment because he worked for Nissan? If that's the case, this looks like bad blood/a setup.

Looks like he took a lick also... does he get a fair shake or is he just guilty because he is the man? A woman can make a man or a woman can break a man. You better figure out quick which type you have and act accordingly. Mine ran off with my children and over half my shit because I "worked too much". If I had it all over to do again I would have just smacked her ass around and gave her a reason to leave....

The PD's issue press releases for major crimes or arrests. In this case, the PD got several media inquiries. It's less time-consuming for them if it just issues a press release instead of repeating the same story to each reporter. They had two other inquiries on this story when I called.

4:12 No doubt, you are a real gem.

Why is this "news"? He was arrested - that's not a conviction.

Curious as to whether KingFish follows non-guilty verdicts.

So basically several media outlets inquired about the "arrest of the Nissan VP", and the press release from the PD states they don't verify employment as an answer simply to not confirm or deny, and just say they don't give a damn about your employment if it is not relevant to the case?

Actually I hate to see this as a news item. If the couple is having domestic difficulties, nothing will be solved by trotting it out on a blog. People are having domestic difficulties every day and night of every year. I guess the fact that he's employed by Nissan makes this super-newsworthy. The sharks are circling.

Better to get rid of the quarrelsome wife...........

My neighbors wife hit him in the head with a laptop, he's an excutive with a local company, the police arrested her. Why didn't this make the news.

Most of the Domestic Violence cases I see (very few actually violent) are skewed toward the woman. I also see many more cases dismissed after arrest due to the woman usually calming down and getting what she feels is justice due to the hubby/boyfriend arrested and jailed overnight then having to pay a bond. The law puts us LE's in a bind at times as the Statute states, the officer SHALL arrest, not may or can think about it, etc. I know, the argument will be made what happens when you leave and something bad happens? We can't dictate how people will act after the fact. Bad situation all around.

I don't see the news value here. This is click bait so the arrogant dickheads that post on this blog can feel better about themselves because they haven't been caught fucking up (yet).

9:48, it's a big deal given this guy's public profile as leading one of Mississippi's largest and well known industries plus it may end his corporate career because of this situation. You should also try to learn how to communicate without language that exposes your ranking as an uneducated redneck.

Really people. You just want something to bitch about. Not only was the article posted here, but it appears in several other papers in the State of Mississippi. For God's sake, it's a crime and should be reported no matter who the person is. If they don't want their mugshot on the front page of the Clarion Ledger, then don't do the crime.

Anonymous said...

Wow. This is clickbait if ive ever seen it. Nobody knows all the facts yet, yet this man is guilty? Blows my mind. Usually they dont even get arrested for this, something smells fishy.

Anonymous said...

As if his occupation is in some way related. I can support headlining such allegations if a politician is involved or a well known minister....people who asked for the job based on morality and owning a 'higher standard'. What if he were the janitor out at Nissan? Or a reporter at the Ledger Clarion?

Exactly the way Trump has been treated.

Anonymous said...

The facts are Trump is a proven liar. This guy as far as the public knows is not. When a scummy person gets accused, it’s much easier to assume they likely did it and if not, they probably have gotten away with far worse so they had it coming. Like when Trump was caught on tape talking about grabbing women by the pussy and then gets accused of covering up his affair with a prostitute porn star. We assume it’s true because of his previous actions and that he lied about the payments originally. There’s a saying about fool me once shame on me, fool me twice shame on you. In that case, Trump is the shame.

I am an employee at Nissan and have met Mr.Calhoun.He's a great person and he very relatable to all employees. And there's definitely 2 sides to every story. Why is there an assumption a woman is involved. Innocent until proven guilty.

Actually from a trustworthy source, this man Mr. Calhoun came between his wife and son. The son was arguing with his mother, and he had to break them apart! The blow came from his son.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
