LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested three people who waged a path of destruction through several city-owned potted plants.
According to arrest reports, officers were called to the corner of 4th St. and Main St. early Monday morning after someone reported that three people were breaking and destroying several city-owned planters and garbage bins.
When officers arrived, they allegedly found debris from nine flower pots spread between the intersections of 4th St. and Liberty St. and 4th St. and Main St. Police say a Yellow Cab driver flagged officers down and pointed out the suspects: 19-year-old Alexander Marthaler, 18-year-old Jonathan Duncan and 19-year-old Shawna Durbin.
Police followed them from Main St. to the Second Street Bridge, where Marthaler was allegedly carrying a stolen patio table above his head, "and was preparing to throw it over the bridge," according to arrest reports.
All three suspects were arrested and charged with criminal mischief. Marthaler and Duncan were also charged with alcohol intoxication, according to police.
