MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Three Marshall County deputies were arrested Wednesday after a citizen signed warrants charging them with criminal mischief related to the damage of political campaign signs during the 2014 election cycle.

Heath Thomas, Chris Bearden, and Jeremiah McCormack were arrested and have since posted bond. 

Tonya Glassco, a representative of the Chuck Ellis for Sheriff campaign, is the woman who filed the complaint against the deputies.

She said they waited this long to seek the warrant because they didn't want it to appear political.

"Justice needs to be served, and they need to be held accountable," Glassco said. "No one is above the law - not even the law."

Sheriff Scott Walls said in a written statement, “At the conclusion of these cases, I will take appropriate action if any is required."

A warrant was also issued for a non-employee, Tiffany Bearden, on charges of criminal mischief.

Thomas is additionally charged with harassment, over allegations that he pushed Glassco during a campaign event.

Bearden, McCormack and Thomas have been placed on administrative leave with pay pending the outcome of these cases.
