A 20-year-old Lansing man has been charged following an investigation into graffiti spray-painted on pillars at the state Capitol and a nearby war memorial.

State police say in a release that Jeffery Handley was arraigned Wednesday in Lansing District Court on several malicious destruction of property charges.

Handley was arrested Wednesday afternoon by Lansing Community College public safety officers.

Capitol security officers discovered the graffiti Thursday. The graffiti included stick figures on the columns and the phrase "Give art a chance" on the memorial.

Community college and Lansing police were investigating similar incidents.

No one answered a call Wednesday to a telephone number listed for Handley in nearby Eaton Rapids.
