A Jewish man in Upstate NY was jailed on Monday for falsely reporting racist vandalism to police.
Now, Andrew King, 54, of Schenectady, is facing a charge of Falsely Reporting an Incident in the Third Degree after police determined that he spray painted three swastikas on his home.
King originally reported that an unknown individual vandalized his home on February 10, WRGB-TV reported.
King was in Schenectady City lockup awaiting arraignment on Tuesday morning.
WTEN-TV reported that King was also arrested on an outstanding warrant for Harassment, stemming from an incident in which he allegedly threatened to harm another person in February.
