A Henderson man will appear in court Wednesday after being charged with vandalizing the city’s Memorial Day display.
Police say 27-year-old Anthony Burrus drove his car through a display of more than 5,000 crosses in the city’s Central Park early Saturday morning.
As many as 160 of the crosses were damaged or destroyed.
Henderson police officer Jennifer Richmond said the city’s Memorial Day observance went off as scheduled Monday, thanks to some fast repair work.
“To my knowledge, they were able to get the crosses back in the ground, and repair some others that had been destroyed,” Richmond said.
The crosses were repaired by members of the Henderson fire department, the American Legion and local residents.
Burrus told police he has no memory of what happened.
He’s been charged with criminal mischief in the first degree and leaving the scene of an accident.
