Jonathan Alan Williams, a Raleigh man, was arrested yesterday after allegedly placing white hoods on a downtown Raleigh Confederate statue. Williams was charged with littering, according to ABC11.

The arrested man apparently tweeted about the statue earlier in the day.


The 7-foot statue was previously vandalized in 2015 when “Black Lives Matter” was spray-painted onto it.
