CARO, Mich. (AP) - Two teenagers have been charged with ethnic intimidation, a felony, three months after a wall of cardboard boxes with anti-Hispanic messages blocked a driveway in Michigan’s Thumb region.

The prosecutor in Tuscola County issued an arrest warrant Friday. The teens are 17.

In November, a family in Koylton Township found the driveway blocked with boxes that were taped together. The boxes said “Trump,” ”Take Back America” and a message that disparaged Hispanics. The Bay City Times (https://bit.ly/2exEt1P ) says one person in the house is Hispanic.

Prosecutor Mark Reene says the teens voluntarily contacted the sheriff’s office to talk about the incident.
