ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Monday’s shutdown of Interstate 70 has led to charges against two protestors for their role in the shutdown.
St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch has filed three counts against Brittney Ferrell and Alexis Templeton who were among several who tried to stop a motorist who was attempting to drive through the protestors.
Ferrell is charged with felony property damage for allegedly kicking the victim’s driver’s side door causing nearly $5,000 worth of damage according to a body shop estimate.
Templeton is charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly punching the motorist in the face causing a black eye. Both are charged with Class B, Misdemeanor Peace Disturbance and First Degree Trespass, which is also a misdemeanor.
According to accounts on Twitter, Ferrell was released after posting a $10,000 bond. The St. Louis Prosecutor’s Office states Templeton was released on a summons.
