Man Who Mowed Down Hundreds of Memorial Day Crosses Apologizes In Police VideoScreen Shot 2016-06-02 at 2.43.01 PM
Last Saturday, Anthony Burrus was arrested after mowing down hundreds of crosses in Henderson, Kentucky that were placed in honor of those that have died serving.
He vandalized 160 of the 5,000 crosses that were placed in Central Park in Henderson County, Kentucky by mowing them down with his 1979 Ford Thunderbird.
Of the 5,000 crosses that are on display, one of them is his fathers.
Burrus on video apologized for the incident towards the veterans and the local community and called it “a slap in the face to me, and of course every veteran out there that this would happen.”
Burrus never fully admits his guilt, saying that he could not remember what happened that night as he “must’ve blacked out.” He did say it was most likely him based on video evidence and that he is almost certainly the only one to own a 1979 Ford Thunderbird in Henderson.
On the accident, he said “this was very malicious, it seems malicious, but I didn’t do it as such.”
As a way to apologize to all those affected by the incident, Burrus helped set up the chairs for the Memorial Day service and offered to clean up the crosses that were on display.
