Police in Miami arrested a 26-year-old man accused of filming himself destroying the tombstone of two former middle school classmates killed by a drunk driver on New Year’s Day 2021 and taunting the victims’ families on Instagram.

Brian Rodriguez, 26, faces charges of disturbing the contents of a grave, burglary, and criminal mischief, causing $2,745 in damages, to the graves of best friends Andres Zacarias and Jenser Salazar, both 21, at the Caballero Rivero Woodlawn Cemetery in Miami.

He was free on $5,000 bond, online court records show. He is set to appear in court for an arraignment on Sept. 15. It was unclear Friday whether he had an attorney.
