A Manhattan man whose car was defaced with racist graffiti admitted he was responsible for the graffiti, Riley County police said Monday.

Dauntarius Williams, 21, expressed regret for his actions, Riley County Police Department officials said in a news release.

“I would like to deeply apologize to the community,” Williams said in a statement provided by police. “The whole situation got out of hand when it shouldn’t have even started. It was just a Halloween prank that got out of hand. I wish I could go back to that night but I can’t. I just want to apologize from the bottom of my heart for the pain and news I have brought you all.”

The FBI joined the investigation into the matter after it was reported Nov. 1. The graffiti contained racist slurs and a threat.

Though Williams filed a false report, Riley County Police Department Director Brad Schoen and Riley County Attorney Barry Wilkerson decided not to press charges.
