MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Milwaukee Brewers’ baseball fans were upset to learn that two monuments at the Miller Park stadium were spray painted and defaced over the weekend.
A 54-year-old Mukwonago woman was arrested on Sunday, the same day of the incident.
WTMJ-TV quoted witnesses as saying that a woman targeted the statue of Major League Commissioner and former Brewers’ owner Bud Selig. A memorial near home plate was also defaced, honoring the iron workers killed during a construction accident at Miller Park which delayed the opening of the stadium by a year, until 2001.
Several fans told WTMJ they were angry about the vandalism – and they were hard-pressed to explain to their kids what happened.
A Brewers’ spokesman said cleanup efforts were continuing Monday.
