KTLA reported:

A man suspected of driving through a military display and destroying crosses that had been placed for a Memorial Day ceremony in a Kentucky park was arrested this weekend, police announced.

Anthony Burrus, 27, was taken into custody Saturday on suspicion of first-degree criminal mischief and leaving the scene of an accident, the Henderson Police Department said in Facebook post. The arrest came hours after the incident.

Burrus is accused of driving through the Memorial Day display, destroying 20 crosses and damaging another 160, the post stated.

His 1997 Ford Thunderbird was found abandoned at a McDonald’s, according to the post. Pieces of crosses and stakes were found embedded in the tires.

The Henderson community expressed outrage over the incident, which occurred at a Memorial Day tradition that has been taking place for decades.

“It’s disturbing, that somebody just has no respect,” said Tom Davis, whose father started the annual ceremony.
