Davis Jones, Patriot, Canes Fan

Fan unapologetic for pulling Canes jerseys off statues

A local resident, unapologetic about his actions, rebuked the North Carolina Historical Commission for not being more upset when state monuments were garbed in Carolina Hurricanes jerseys.
“Do you think Andrew Jackson, sitting majestically on his horse while wearing a Hurricanes jersey was awe-inspiring and thought-provoking?” Davis Jones told the commission. “No, it was a distraction and derailed the purpose of the monument to both educate and honor.”
Jones, 49, was issued a citation for injuring the personal property of the state on May 24, when he removed the jerseys from the Union Square monuments. The statues were decorated for the Hurricanes’ playoff run.
