Police found a video showing a man breaking into a behind-the-scenes photo of the deceased Rep. John Lewis and playing with something in his bag at 10 a.m., a police spokesman said.

Nearby photos of Lewis and Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman shot and killed in Louisville, Ky. police last year, were not arrested.
In June, the Floyd statue was painted with black paint and marked with the slogan “Patriot Forward” – a white country hating the group.
