Four men face federal charges for trying to tear down Andrew Jackson statue after Trump signed order to protect monuments

The maximum penalty for 'willful injury' of federal property is 10 years in prison

Four men have been charged for attempting to topple a statue of President Andrew Jackson near the White House last week. The suspects have been charged with the destruction of federal property, the U.S. Justice Department announced on Saturday.

The four men were at protests at Lafayette Square in Washington, D.C., on Monday. The men attempted to use ropes to topple the bronze statue of Andrew Jackson, who served as the seventh president of the United States.

As police attempted to protect the statue, there were clashes with the crowd. Two U.S. Park Police officers were injured, and two rioters were arrested.
