GRAIN VALLEY, Mo., June 2 (UPI) -- Missouri motorists were rerouted after a dummy wearing a President Obama mask was found hanging from a bridge early on Monday morning.

The dummy was spotted hanging off the Lesholz Bridge over I-70 near Grain Valley.

Traffic across the Lesholz was initially stopped, but the bridge has since been reopened.

According to FOX 4 News, a robot was used to bring the dummy into a nearby field so that crews could x-ray it for possible explosives.

So far no photos of the dummy have been released.
