Micah Femiah is Beals’ stage name. He was arrested in Washington D.C., January 6, 2021, for violating curfew after the insurrection on the United States Capitol.

According to Heavy.com, the case against him remains pending. However, it is listed as ‘post-and-forfeit’.

D.C. law allows someone to forfeit collateral instead of appearing in court if they are arrested for “certain traffic” and other lower-level offenses.

Beals also has previous arrests that date back to 2002 in several states, including his home state, Michigan, and California.

In 2002, he was charged with driving without a valid registration in Kent County in Michigan. Ten years later he was charged with malicious destruction of property in the same county. 

In 2014, he was charged for driving without a license and giving false information.

He was also charged with a misdemeanor in Washington in 2013. He pleaded guilty but the details of the case, including the crime, were not immediately available.

According to Heavy, Beals has been cited twice in Orange County and Los Angeles County. Details are not available.

Following the vandalism of the George Floyd statue earlier this month, a group of volunteers went to a Blick art materials store to gather materials repair the statue.

The Washington Post reports that one of the volunteers was an artist who knew which materials would be best for restoring the statue.

“They went to the hardware.” [store]They bought supplies out of their pockets,” Confront Art cofounder Andrew Cohen, who designed the bust, told CNN.

“This is inspiring teamwork, and the support of the community. 

A skateboarder from Manhattan vandalized the memorial in memory of George Floyd. He allegedly sprayed silver paint on the statue over the weekend, according to authorities.

The George Floyd bust was unveiled on Juneteenth, Brooklyn. It was then made available to the general public two days later. It was defaced with blackpaint and the message less than a week later. ‘Patriot Front’ is a hate group of white nationalists.

Terrence Floyd, Floyd’s brother, stated that it was incredibly disappointing that the statues were destroyed in such a short time. He also shared a statement with the nonprofit We are Floyd Foundation on Saturday. “It just goes to show how far we still have yet to go to achieve our goal of unity.” 

Chris Carnabuci (the artist who made the sculpture) said that while vandalism is not surprising, it was upsetting for everyone.

He stated that the #SeeInjustice exhibit was created at Union Square Park to encourage civil discourse and offer a place where different opinions could be heard. It will be on display from October 30 to October 30.

Carnabuci (57) stated that vandalism of any kind is not a productive or meaningful action. “Actions like these remind us that we still have a long way ahead of us, and we will not stop fighting.”

Carnabuci previously told the New York Times he decided to create the statues because he felt ‘hopeless’ while watching the protests against police brutality unfold in the wake of George Floyd’s murder at the hands of Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis in May 2020, and his wife encouraged him to express his sorrow with art.

“We started to think about making an exhibit and bringing around the pieces to keep the awareness up,” he stated. “And even raise money for foundations that are geared towards those in need.”

Andrew Cohen and Lindsay Eshelman were his co-founders. Confront Art is an organization that connects artists with social justice causes to create public artwork. They designed the statues to be easily restored if they were damaged. 

Police claimed that the vandalism did little to damage the statues of Lewis and Breonna Taylor.
