Ellis, 37, was charged with criminal mischief, possession of a weapon, desecrating a religious premise and object and desecrating a monument. He was taken to Morris County Jail in lieu of $25,000, and is scheduled for a bail hearing Tuesday afternoon.
Police said alcohol played a role in the vandalism.
The sculpture measured about 2 feet by 2 feet and was inspired by James Kelly, a 37-year-old Hanley victim, who committed suicide.
