Another problem cropped up Wednesday with the new $4.8 million State Capitol security upgrade.

One set of bollards used to control exit and entry to parking at the front of the Capitol malfunctioned. Bollards are vertical metal barriers that stop the passage of vehicles into off-limits areas.

Capitol personnel were waiting for a repair crew to arrive at the noon hour as security officers monitored comings and goings.

The problem apparently cropped up late Tuesday when the bollards could no longer go up and down electronically.

On Monday, state Rep. Paul Hollis, R-Covington, had a jolting encounter with a set of bollards which came up when he was driving his Audi off another parking lot. Hollis broke his hand and got a mild concussion in the wreck which did major damage to his car.
