Cops who arrested me were fans and wanted to talk about exit through the gift shop and even liked the tag. at the first holding cell in Williamsburg (there were only 5people in the cell) the police were googling me and asking about things like the tunnel nightclub.
According to NYCourts.gov he was charged with ‘Attempted Making Graffiti’, ‘Attempted Crm Mis: intnt Dmge Prprty‘ and ‘Possession of Graffiti Instrum.’
