A woman wielding a crowbar smashed a display case Wednesday at the Loveland Museum/Gallery, ripped out a piece of artwork that has been the center of growing controversy and shredded it into small pieces, witnesses said.

Kathleen Folden, 56, of Kalispell, Mont., was arrested shortly after the 4 p.m. incident and charged with felony criminal mischief [...]

“She was saying, ‘How can you desecrate my Lord?’” said Mark Michels, the man who grabbed Folden. “She wanted to wreck the print, and that was it. After that, she was totally passive.”

The artwork, titled “The Misadventures of the Romantic Cannibals,” was contained in an 82-piece art collection compiled by Lyons printer Bud Shark, and some viewers say it depicts Jesus Christ engaged in oral sex.
