Man To Be Charged In Ten Commandments Monument Destruction

Posted: Updated:
LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas -

An Arkansas prosecutor plans to charge a man accused of crashing his vehicle into a Ten Commandments monument outside the State Capitol with first-degree criminal mischief.

Larry Jegley says that 32-year-old Michael Reed faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted on the felony charge.

Reed was arrested in June after Little Rock police say he intentionally drove into the monument, destroying it less than 24 hours after it was erected.  He also streaming the crash on Facebook live.

Reed was also arrested in 2014 for destroying Oklahoma's Ten Commandments statue outside the state Capitol, but wasn't charged in that case.

Reed's sister, Mindy Poor, has said her brother suffers from schizoaffective disorder.
