LONDON (AP) — Police say a man has been charged with allegedly spraying paint on a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II that is hanging in Westminster Abbey.
Tim Haries is due to appear in a London court Friday charged with criminal damage over 5,000 pounds ($7,800).
The 41-year-old was arrested at the abbey Thursday after a portrait of the monarch by Australian artist Ralph Heimans was defaced with paint.
The dads' rights group Fathers 4 Justice said Haries was a member and had painted the word "help" on the 9-foot by 11-foot (2.5-meter by 3.4-meter) canvas.
Heimans' portrait, which depicts the queen on the spot in the abbey where she was crowned, was commissioned last year to mark the monarch's 60 years on the throne.
