A man accused of defacing a mural of President Barack Obama is set to appear in court today.

Michael Kroetsch was arrested in February and charged with felony criminal mischief. Investigators say he splashed paint across an image of the president, which is located in Midtown near the Breakfast Klub.

The mural has since been re-painted.
