Arkansas man accused of toppling 10 Commandments monument faces charges

Arkansas Online

A prosecutor says he plans to charge a man accused of crashing his vehicle into a Ten Commandments monument outside the Arkansas Capitol with first-degree criminal mischief.

Larry Jegley told The Associated Press on Monday that 32-year-old Michael Tate Reed faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted on the felony charge. 

Reed’s attorney wasn’t immediately available for comment.

Reed was arrested last month after, Little Rock police say, he intentionally drove into the monument, destroying it less than 24 hours after it was erected.

Reed was also arrested in 2014 after Oklahoma’s Ten Commandments statue outside the state Capitol was destroyed, but he wasn’t charged in that case.

Reed’s sister, Mindy Poor, has said her brother suffers from schizoaffective disorder.

  1. “Reed’s sister, Mindy Poor, has said her brother suffers from schizoaffective disorder.”

    Bet Big Pharma had a hand in that.

    Otherwise, I’d have to assume this guy’s a jew.

  2. Yet , southern monuments are being trashed daily by the idiots our tax dollars are paying for

    When will the Mayors of these towns be sitting in the cell next to this moron?
