The Clemson Police are investigating another vandalism incident with graffiti at Tillman Hall on Thursday morning.

The spray paint message on the two walls said, "Stop honoring Tillman" and "Rename Tillman Hall."

Clemson officials think that the vandalism happened Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.

The penalty for a first offense of vandalism is up to $1,000 fine or up to 90 days in prison.

Chief Public Affairs Officer Cathy Sams made a statement on Thursday: "We understand that there are strong opinions about Tillman, but vandalism of a historic property is a crime and we have to treat it as such. We hope that this incident doesn’t take away from the positive work that is being done to better document and tell the full history of Clemson University."

Clemson University's Tillman Hall was originally vandalized with spray paint graffiti back on July 6 with remarks, "Tillman was a violent racist", "R.I.P. Sen. Coker" and "R.I.P. Sen. Pinckney."
