Everyday for early voting, supporters and candidates put signs up on the courthouse lawn hoping to catch the eyes of early voters heading to the election commission office across the street to vote. This morning a young man who told police he was tied of the election allegedly came through the courthouse lawn and kicked all the signs down that had been set up just before 8 AM.
The man taken into custody was identified as David Mackie and he was placed under $2500 bond.
