FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Fargo Police have finally made an arrest in connection to the defacing of a Jesus statue at a Fargo church earlier this spring.

28-year-old Blair Whitten is charged with one misdemeanor count of criminal mischief for spray painting the face of a statue of Jesus Christ on April 17.

Documents also show Whitten is charged with another misdemeanor count of criminal mischief for causing damage to the door of a business at 901 28th St. S., Suite C in Fargo on June 4. Documents didn’t detail what specific kind of damage was sustained in the incident.

Whitten is also accused of crashing her ex-boyfriend’s funeral back in May, attempting to run people over and driving over gravesites at a Fargo cemetery.

Whitten entered a not guilty plea this afternoon with a pretrial conference scheduled for later this month. In that case she is charged with one count of misdemeanor reckless endangerment.
