S.A.D.D Signs

Lawn signs have it rough

L ess than a week after police arrested a man for allegedly vandalizing signs along Church Street, a similar set of signs has been disturbed on the Quaker Street side of Granville Jr./Sr. High School.

Police said Sean M. Mahr, 21, was arrested Oct. 29 when he was allegedly spotted by a passing motorist damaging signs placed along the road by the group S.A.D.D. or Students Against Drunk Driving. School officials elected to press charges and Mahr faces one count of misdemeanor fourth-degree criminal mischief intentional damage of property because police said a witness saw him tangling with the signs.

A patrol officer said Mahr was still in the process of vandalizing the signs when they arrived on scene.

Mahr told police he ripped some of the signs out of the ground and knocked others over because he was upset after being fired from a Church Street business.

Mahr was processed and released to appear in village court at a later date.
