PRINCETON, W.Va. (AP) - Rather than charging five people accused of spray-painting graffiti along a Mercer County bridge, authorities say they had them repaint it instead.

Mercer County Commissioner Greg Puckett tells WVVA-TV (https://bit.ly/1TcSCzK ) that he, Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ash and Chief Deputy Darrell Bailey agreed to allow the five suspects to avoid misdemeanor charges by fixing what they had done.

All five completed their work along the bridge over Eads Mill Road in Princeton on Sunday.

Several cameras have been installed on and around the bridge to keep it clean.
