Memphis man charged with throwing bricks at City Hall

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – A prosecutor says a 48-year-old Memphis man has been charged in an indictment with throwing bricks through windows at City Hall and riding away on a bicycle on three different occasions.

Investigators said a man walked up to the front of City Hall on March 20 and began throwing bricks and breaking numerous windows before pedaling away. Investigators said the same person did more damage when he returned the next day and again on March 25, then rode off on a bike.

District Attorney General Amy Weirich’s office says in a news release that after surveillance video was released to the public, the man was identified as Bernard Gillard.

He was charged Thursday with vandalism over $10,000, a felony. He’s being held in the Shelby County Jail. Online jail records did not indicate whether he is represented by a lawyer.
