Ontario Provincial Police say charges have been withdrawn as police continue to investigate damage to the newly painted Pride crosswalk in Kemptville.

Shortly after 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, police received a report of mischief at the corner of Reuben Crescent and Prescott Street.

In a statement on Wednesday, police said "a witness reported observing a female driver operating a pickup truck, intentionally spinning its tires as it drove over the crosswalk."

The OPP said on Wednesday the driver was identified and charged at that time.

In a statement Friday evening, police said the Grenville County OPP received "contradictory evidence to support the charges being withdrawn."

The Grenville County OPP is continuing to investigate the incident, and is asking anyone with additional information or surveillance footage of the area to notify Grenville County OPP at 1-888-310-1122.

On Monday, the municipality of North Grenville and Kemptville Pride unveiled the first-ever rainbow crosswalk at the intersection of Prescott Street and Reuben Crescent in Old Town Kemptville.
