Around 12:30 a.m. on August 6, Michael Larson was cited for misdemeanor "damage to property" for refusing to clean up chalk outlines intended to memorialize the victims of the nuclear attack on Hiroshima. Around two dozen people had participated in a "shadow project", turning the entire downtown and lakefront of Duluth into a memorial. The arrest was the first time in ten years of "shadow project" actions in Duluth that anyone had been cited or even harassed by police. Larson's trial is set for November 16.
