That driver was identified as Michael Tate Reed of Van Buren, Arkansas. He was admitted the next day to a hospital for mental treatment and formal charges were never filed. It is not yet clear if he is the same person who attacked the Arkansas monument.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say they’re the same guy. Something tells me that it would be a pretty steep coincidence for there to be two entirely different Michael Tate Reeds in a town of 22,000 people who both seem to have a proclivity for driving trucks into Ten Commandments monuments. Either that, it’s some sort of network of people using the same alias, but that seems like long shot.

Unless this man is forgiven, the people who put up this monument are hypocrites.

After all, didn’t Moses also destroy the first set of tablets?

on preliminary charges of defacing objects of public interest

More like public mythology…

You’d think they would just lay the hands on this guy and cure his issues …—

I think that only works for the biblical curing of the Sodomites…

Maybe it’s not a good idea to put Ten Commandments statues on public property. No law respecting an establishment of religion, etc. Might upset people. Might upset Michael Tate, in particular.
