Green Paint Splattered on Lincoln Memorial

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. Park Police in Washington say the Lincoln Memorial is temporarily closed after someone splattered green paint on the statue and the floor area. 

Police say the apparent vandalism was discovered early Friday morning. No words, letters or symbols were visible in the paint. 

Police say the memorial on the National Mall will be closed until a maintenance crew from the National Park Service can finish cleaning up the paint. That's expected to happen Friday morning.
