An apparently mentally disturbed woman was arrested Wednesday after a string of unusual vandalisms on King Street. On Wednesday morning, Boone Police responded to a large amount of vandalism on various businesses in the downtown King Street area. Buildings and fixtures had been written on, fire hydrants had been tampered with, an ATM had been damaged,and other strange incidents of damage were observed. Later in the morning, police responded to a report of a woman acting strangely in the same area of King Street.  Officers encountered Jacqueline Kathleen Bryant, 21 years old from Banner Elk, who admitted to officers that she had perpetrated all the damage from the previous night.  Officers were concerned for Bryant’s mental state as she acted strangely and described the damages as “expressions” and an “art project”.

Bryant was taken into custody and charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.  She was detained under a $500 secured bond with a March 20 court date and will be likely be mentally evaluated by Daymark Recovery Services.  Officers are continuing the investigation into the various vandalisms and additional charges are forthcoming.
