El Paso County Crime

Denver man arrested for vandalizing COS synagogue

EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. - A Denver man was arrested for vandalizing a Colorado Springs synagogue with hate messages.

We first showed a video of the vandalism back in June when the front door of the Chabad Lubavitch Jewish Center was desecrated with a sticker that said "Fight terror, Nuke Israel."

The Anti-Defamation League reported on Monday night that William Scott Planer, who lives in Denver, faces misdemeanor charges.

He's being held at the El Paso County jail on a $500,000 bond as a fugitive from justice for felony charges in California.

The charges, assault with a deadly weapon and participating in a riot, stem from Planer's alleged attack on a protester during a clash at a June 2016 white supremacist march in Sacramento, Calif.
