JACKSON, Ms., (KNOE 8 News) - Vicksburg Mayor Paul Winfield has now been arrested on federal bribery charges.

FBI spokeswoman Deborah Madden says Winfield was arrested in Vicksburg by federal agents. No details of Winfield's arrest have been released.

The 39-year-old Winfield is being held in the Madison County Detention Center in Canton. He is scheduled to appear before a federal magistrate judge in Jackson later today (Thursday).

He is completing his first term as Vicksburg's mayor and has qualified to seek re-election.

Winfield also is the subject of a sexual harassment lawsuit from a former city employee. That case is scheduled to go to trial Feb. 10, 2014, before U.S. District Judge David C. Bramlette.
