Three Marshall men were arrested Sunday afternoon at Bella Wyatt Park for criminal mischief after the trio were caught "mud hogging."
According to police spokeswoman Sonya Johnson, James Edward Brown, 42, Christopher Scott Call, 18, and Scott Desalvo, 19, were arrested at about 3:20 p.m. Sunday after tearing up several sections of grass at the park on East Rusk Street in Marshall.
Johnson said the three men were racing lawnmowers through the mud in the park when a passerby reported the incident to officers.
The men were charged with criminal mischief between $1,500 and $20,000.
Brown was released from Harrison County Jail on $7,500 bond Monday. Desalvo and Call remained jailed each on $7,500 bond Monday afternoon.
Johnson said they were charged because of the damages that were caused to the park.
