TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) — A 30-year-old man has been arrested for investigation of vandalism after police say he scrawled “tastes like hate” on the side of a Chick-fil-A restaurant in a Los Angeles suburb.

Torrance police say Manuel Castro was taken into custody Wednesday night after they found him in West Hollywood. Castro posted $20,000 bail and was released. It wasn’t immediately known if he had retained an attorney.

The message, accompanied by a cow, was found last Friday as gay marriage supporters ramped up protests against the corporate owner’s opposition to same-sex unions.

The flap began last month when Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy told a religious publication that the company backed “the biblical definition of a family.”
