LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas -

A Van Buren man was arrested on Wednesday after running his car into a newly placed 10 Commandments monument at the Arkansas State Capitol.

He did the same thing in Oklahoma City in 2014.

Michael Reed, 32, drove through the monument around 4:47 a.m. and recorded the act on Facebook live.

Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office spokesman Mark Opgrande tells The Associated Press that Michael Tate Reed of Van Buren, Arkansas, was arrested in October 2014 in the destruction of Oklahoma's Ten Commandments monument at the state Capitol.

Reed was taken to hospital in Oklahoma for mental health treatment and never formally charged in that case.

Reed is now being held in the Pulaski County Detention Center on charges of defacing an object of public interest, criminal trespassing and first degree criminal mischief.

The privately funded monument was 6 feet tall and weighed 6,000 pounds. It was installed Tuesday on the southwest lawn of the Arkansas Capitol with little fanfare and no advance notice. 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
