Man accused of spray-painting Nazi symbols on business
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- Lexington Police received a call around 9:30 Monday morning of a man wearing a ski mask and black clothing, while waving around a rifle.
The man appeared to be waving around an assault rifle outside of the Men’s Wearhouse on Vendor Way in Hamburg.
When officers arrived, the man dropped the rifle and took off on foot toward the Best Buy.
Police caught up with him and arrested him without further incident.
42 year-old Joshua Grubbs was arrested by officers after they deemed his actions to be a danger to others and himself.
Grubbs is charged with disorderly conduct.
Police recovered the gun and found it to be an airsoft rifle that had been spray-painted black.
It is also believed that Grubbs spray-painted Nazi symbols on the building.
Grubbs has had run-ins with police before, so he is not a stranger to the law.
It is unknown if Grubbs has ties to any specific groups or organizations.
