GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. — Crews are investigating after a dummy bearing a President Obama face mask was found hanging from the Lesholz Bridge over I-70 near Grain Valley, Mo. Police received the report around 5:30 a.m. Monday.

Authorities rerouted traffic due to the distraction it caused Monday. Traffic across the bridge has since been allowed to cross.

Crews, using a robot, removed the dummy and took it into a nearby field where it was x-rayed for possible explosives.

FOX 4 News is at the scene and will have more information as soon as it becomes available.

They have removed the dummy with a bomb handling robot and investigation will continue today.

Stay Classy, there.  I have no problem with protest, even big protest.. but it's real chicken s*** stuff to do something like this over a federal highway and just walk off.  If you're going to do it, stand up and own your work and face the consequences.   Explain why you did it.  Otherwise, everyone knows the truth: you're just a bunch of conspiracy minded racists who are too chicken to own your own message.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
