A man faces multiple charges after authorities say he threw paint on a Confederate monument in Florence.
Seth Jones Robinson threw purple and blue paint on the monument outside the Lauderdale County Courthouse about 4 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies said they watched him do it.
Robinson is charged with criminal trespassing, attempting to elude, criminal mischief and desecration of a venerated object.
The sheriff’s office said the statue immediately was pressure-washed to remove the paint.
