HENDERSON, Ky. (AP) - A Henderson man has pleaded guilty to driving through a Memorial Day cross display.

The Gleaner (https://bit.ly/2fftmuu) reports that 28-year-old Anthony Burrus entered a guilty plea on Monday to charges of first-degree criminal mischief and leaving the scene of an accident.

Burrus was arrested on May 28 after police said he knocked down about 150 crosses and destroyed another 20. The crosses were placed at a park in May in honor of Memorial Day. Each cross had the name of a deceased veteran.

Henderson police said security footage showed a 1979 Ford Thunderbird driving through the crosses. Police eventually located the car, which was driven by Burrus, and arrested him later that day.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 21.
