An African-American man has been charged with the noose vandalism of a Tupac statue at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts.

As we previously reported, the center was vandalized early on the morning of October 20. Fliers bearing rants about various rappers, Hurricane Katrina and 9/11 were plastered to the Tupac statue and a noose was left hanging around its neck

43-year-old Dekalb resident, Kenneth Anthony Wilson, was charged with the felony, second degree criminal damage to property, on Thursday (Oct. 1), according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Wilson, who is of African-American descent, has not been charged with a hate crime because according to Dekalb Police spokesperson Mekka Parish, the investigators had no reason to believe the crime was motivated by race. Wilson is being held on $1,500 bond.
