In Botetourt County, a confederate monument outside the courthouse was splattered with paint.

Maintenance crews cleaned it up Tuesday afternoon.

A spokesman for the county said peaceful protests are fundamental to our democracy, but destruction of property can be harmful and diverts public resources.
