The 37-year-old skateboarder accused of vandalizing a George Floyd statue in Manhattan’s Union Square Park has reportedly been identified as a small-time actor who once appeared in “Parks and Recreation.”

Micah Beals, 37, was charged with second-degree criminal mischief for allegedly throwing paint on the sculpture around 10:15 a.m. Oct. 3, according to police.


Beals also faced legal trouble in Washington, DC, during the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill when he was arrested under his stage name for allegedly breaking curfew, according to police records.
