Former Beauregard Monument Site Spray-Painted

New Orleans Police say two men face charges after allegedly spray painting the remaining base structure at the site of the Confederate General P.T.G. Beauregard monument.

Around 3 a.m Wednesday., masked work crews took down the third of four Confederate monuments under orders of Mayor Mitch Landrieu. Then, two men were allegedly caught as they spray painted the words "Gen Beauregard CSA" on the remaining base.

The NOPD arrested the father and son taggers who now face several charges including defacing an historic building.
