Ms. Diallo was incarcerated at the Marshall County Jail on a $4,500 cash bond.


UPDATE:    Adam Parkhouse, Media Relations Director said, ” There was a good amount of damage that was caused by this, so there’s fairly substantial work that needs to be done to get the lights operational. We have to redo the foundation, etc., to get it ready to go live again. We’re anticipating the signal could be operational by the end of the week.”
