CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The man accused of tearing down a police memorial is being held in the Hamilton County jail on a $20,000 bond.

Quincy Chapman, 33, appeared in Hamilton County Municipal Court on Wednesday morning.

The judge said Champan has failed to report to court 16 times in the past.

Chapman was caught on surveillance video taking down wreaths from the Fraternal Order of Police’s headquarters on Central Parkway in the West End, according to Cincinnati police.

The wreaths were put up last month for Colerain Township Police Officer Dale Woods, who was killed in the line of duty.

FOP President Sgt. Dan Hils posted the image of Chapman, along with the black and blue wreaths on the Support The Blue In Cincy Facebook page.

The wreaths would have remained in place in honor of a detective with the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office, Bill Brewer, who was shot to death in a standoff Saturday night, Hils said.
