Jewish man has been accused of spray-painting swastikas on his own house after he reported the incident to police as a hate crime.
Andrew King claimed he found two swastikas on his home in Schenectady, New York, last month.
Speaking to local newspaper The Daily Gazette at the time, he said “a vein of fear went right through me” when he saw the graffiti. “All that history attached to that Nazi symbol”.
But Mr King was this week arrested and charged with falsely reporting an incident and police allege he painted the swastikas himself, CBS6Albany reports.
