YPSILANTI, Mich. (WXYZ) - The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Department is investigating an offensive road sign that was found in Ypsilanti.
An Action News viewer snapped the photo of the road commission sign that was showing the message "God Hates N_____s." A Sheriff's Department spokesperson says they received two calls about the sign, which was located at Holmes and Ridge Roads in Ypsilanti.
Based on those calls, the road commission went to the scene, shut the sign off and removed it. The sign is now being examined to determine how the message was generated.
Similar road signs have been hacked in the past to display other messages, but it has not yet been determined if that is what happened in this case.
