• Mock signs, vandalism reported after alleged police beating


    ASHEVILLE, N.C. - There is new fallout following the body camera video that allegedly shows a North Carolina officer assaulting a man for jaywalking.

    Officer Christopher Hickman is facing several charges, including assault, after a video from August in which he allegedly used a stun gun on a jaywalking suspect has surfaced.

    The district attorney said 27 cases charged by Hickman have been dismissed.

    The former officer is no longer considered a credible witness.

    The cases were dismissed because of Hickman's arrest, and officials said none of the cases involved violent felonies or sexual offenses.

    Meanwhile, fake signs have been popping up in Ashville in response to the incident.

    At least three "No jaywalking" signs were found bolted to existing street signs downtown.

    The mock signs said, "Violators are subject to abuse by the Asheville Police Department."

    The city took down the signs.

    The Fraternal Order of Police lodge was vandalized Monday morning.

    Someone spray-painted “Black Lives Matter” on the outside of the building in Asheville.

    The windows of an FOP van were broken out and someone cut the wires to surveillance cameras.

    Police got a picture of the vandal before the wires were cut.
