Micah Beals, who plays Tom Haverford on the NBC show Parks and Recreation, was taken into custody on October 3 for allegedly vandalising a statue of George Floyd that was located in Union Square Park. The suspect, who was seen on surveillance video riding a skateboard and spraying paint at the monument at 10:00 a.m., was identified by the NYPD as having been seen in the tape. Micah Beals would one day be recognised by law enforcement officials. Beals, 37 years old, was arrested and charged with second-degree criminal mischief for defacing a statue of George Floyd that was located in a park in Manhattan.

According to reports, the price tag for permanent repairs to the monument is around $20,000.
