BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – Two Region 8 men have been arrested after posting pictures of themselves vandalizing a historic bridge.

According to the Baxter County Sheriff's Department, an anonymous tip came into the sheriff's department of pictures of two people vandalizing the R.M. Ruthven Bridge in Baxter County.

Police say 20-year-old Bruce Guist, and 19-year-old Levi Miller are charged with second degree criminal mischief after pictures of themselves appeared on Facebook spray painting the bridge.

Guist and Miller told police they found the spray paint can underneath the bridge and decided to paint the bridge, including spraying their names.

A female juvenile was also cited for the same offense after being implicated as the one who took the pictures.

The R.R. Ruthven Bridge was constructed in 1930 and named after former Baxter County Judge R.M. Ruthven. The bridge was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990 and restored in 2002.
