Richmond Man Joseph Weindl Charged with Vandalizing Confederate Monument

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A Richmond man has been charged with vandalizing a monument honoring Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

Richmond police say 39-year-old Joseph Weindl is accused of spray-painting an “L” on the monument’s granite base on Friday night. He is charged with misdemeanor destruction of property.

Police said Saturday night in a news release that Weindl admitted the vandalism. He denied an earlier vandalism of the monument.

Someone spray-painted the slogan “Black lives matter” on the monument’s base on Thursday. Police say the investigation of that incident is continuing.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Weindl has an attorney.
