Traffic at Celebration Plaza was backed up Friday morning as Hopkins County Investigators and Deputies initiated a traffic stop in front of Alliance Bank between City National Bank and the County Courthouse. The traffic stop and docket call for District Court and other court activities in the courthouse created a more than usual traffic flow prior to 9 a.m. The two lanes of traffic were closed and traffic was diverted to alternate routes as city crews assisted in directing traffic.
In the traffic stop, a male and female were handcuffed and were being interviewed separately during the stop. More information will follow, but preliminary reports say the two were arrested.
