Update on Controversial Sign

(KSL News) We want to update you on a story we first brought you last night about a sign in Nephi that some people considered offensive.

It has been taken down.

The sign read "Caution ... Retards in the Area."

Neighbors of 13-year-old Colton Heaton claimed they put it up because Colton threw a rock at their daughter.

Heaton has developmental disabilities. His mother and disability advocates felt the sign was discriminatory and the wrong way to handle the situation.
