A man has been charged with a felony for spray-painting graffiti on a sidewalk on the Near West Side last week.

William Floyd Jr., 39, was charged with one count of criminal damage to government property, according to Chicago Police.

Investigators identified Floyd as the person who spray-painted the sidewalk in the 100 block of South Halsted with “offensive graffiti” between late Thursday and early Friday, police said. Police did not provide further details about the nature of the graffiti.

Floyd, who lives in the West Side Lawndale neighborhood, was taken into custody at 12:35 p.m. Friday in the 700 block of West Monroe, police said.

He was released on an I-bond during his court appearance Saturday, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office.
