From DNAinfo:

Brandon Aebersold, 33, was arrested in Central Park after a police officer recognized him from a surveillance image released after the incident last week, according to authorities.

On March 3, Aebersold approached a guard inside the museum at about 6:15 p.m. and told him that a painting was hanging crooked on the wall, police said.

“The response [from the security guard] wasn’t to his liking,” a police spokesman said, so the suspect clobbered him with a glass bottle.

Aebersold also shouted the N-word slur at the guard after telling him to “do [his] job,” reports the Atlanta Black Star.
