ANN ARBOR – Police are looking to identify a man who appears to have urinated on the University of Michigan Diag where "Black Lives Matter" was written in chalk on the ground.

Video posted to Twitter shows a man walking up to the Diag before beginning to urinate.

The University of Michigan's Department of Public Safety and Security released this statement on Thursday:

Late Wednesday morning, we were notified that pictures and a video were circulating on social media showing a male urinating near the block M of the Diag possibly early Wednesday morning. DPSS is investigating the incident.
