Vandals mar new bridge in Detroit
Tom Greenwood / The Detroit News
Less than a day after it opened, the Mexicantown Bagley Avenue Pedestrian Bridge was vandalized, Michigan Department of Transportation officials said....
In fact, MDOT video cameras caught one woman as she used a colored pen to scrawl on a bench in the middle of the 400-foot-long bridge.
"Yes, it was me," said Oneida Jackson, a copy editor at the Detroit Free Press and author of the Sunday's "O Street" blog.
"I did it. If you see a person with a green pen ... dressed in black slacks and a red top, that's me. I was excited about the event and wanted to put my name on it."
Jackson eventually put away the marker and said "Oh, I guess I shouldn't be doing this," the tape showed. As a blogger, she has written about her efforts as a mom to raise her 16-year-old son and encourage citizens to be more patient and civil.
