(KMOV.com) -- A former alderman and current candidate for mayor in Pine Lawn was arrested Sunday night, after police say she created a disturbance inside a grocery store.

Nakisha Ford was charged with disorderly conduct and stealing after she allegedly became upset with a campaign ad posted inside a Pine Lawn Market, and began yelling at employees to remove it.

Authorities said Ford then ripped the campaign sign off the door and left the business.

Ford told News 4 she did not rip down the sign, but police officials said store surveillance cameras captured the entire disturbance.

Ford is a mayoral candidate in Pine Lawn, running against incumbent Sylvester Caldwell. She served as alderman from 2010 to 2012.

In July, Ford was charged with assaulting a police officer after guests at a party in Pine Lawn reportedly became unruly.

Ford did not post bond and remained jailed late Sunday night.
