Editor note: A previous version of this story suggested all charges were dropped against the couple.  That is not yet formally the case.  The Missouri AG is still seeking to dismiss the case.  We’ll be sure to keep you updated on this breaking story as new details become available.

ST. LOUIS, MO – Kim Gardner, Circuit Attorney for St. Louis, brought charges against a local couple last month who were caught on video brandishing weapons on the porch of their mansion. Now the Missouri Attorney General is stepping in.

Mark and Patricia McCloskey’s response to a mob of protesters tearing down the gate to a private driveway and trespassing across their yard went viral.

The McCloskey’s who are both attorneys, were eating dinner on their patio when several hundred Black Lives Matter protesters, tore down a gate to gain access to a private community that was clearly marked as private with “No Trespassing” signs.
