A 19-year-old man was arrested for damaging a rainbow-colored intersection in Delray Beach, Florida that serves as a symbol of LGBTQ unity.

The Delray Police Department wrote in a press release, “On the evening of Sunday, February 4th, 2024, witnesses reported that Brewer was observed intentionally performing multiple burnouts with his vehicle over the LGBTQ pride crosswalk at the intersection of NE 1st Street and NE 2nd Avenue.”

“The reckless action caused significant damage to the streetscape painting, which serves as a symbol of unity and inclusivity for the LGBTQ community,” the statement continued.

Video showed Dylan Brewer doing burnouts with his truck on the intersection, leaving skid marks.

He turned himself in and was charged with felony criminal mischief and reckless driving.

This was the second time the intersection was vandalized – in 2022, a 22-year-old man pleaded guilty after video showed his truck burning tires on it during a pro-Trump rally.

Both incidents were captured on video and widely shared.

The rainbow streetscape had been dedicated to victims of the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.
