Man arrested for mowing down Memorial Day cross display

- A Kentucky man was arrested after driving a car through a Memorial Day display and damaging 160 crosses Saturday.

The cross display in Henderson's Central Park honors the names of more than 5,000 soldiers who served in conflicts dating back to the Revolutionary War.

According to the Henderson Police Department, Anthony Burrus, 27, has been arrested on charges of criminal mischief in the first degree and leaving the scene of an accident.

The car Burrus was driving, a 1979 Ford Thunderbird, was found abandoned at a nearby McDonald's with pieces of the crosses embedded in the tires. He was found later by authorities at his sister's apartment and taken to the Henderson County Detention Center.
