A man has been arrested in Salem, Massachusetts for dumping red paint all over the “Bewitched” statue!
The six-foot-tall statue of Elizabeth Montgomery, who played the witch Samantha Stephens in the beloved classic 60s sit-com, is now covered in bright red paint from head to torso.
On Monday, witnesses of the vandalism called police who then chased down and arrested a homeless man matching their descriptions. He’s been charged with defacing property, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Kim Driscoll, the mayor of Salem tweeted, “I’m grateful to (Salem police) for their quick work apprehending the individual responsible. We’ll work to get the statue cleaned, as fast as a twitch of Samantha’s nose.”
