Posted by Jason Deem on July 12, 2009 | 27 Comments

David Reeves (AKA ShiniGami) was arrested Friday around 5pm after officers observed the work below in progress on the side of 2613 Cherokee (there’s another “fuck” at the back of the building for good measure.) Similar fuckmarks were also seen on 2315 Cherokee in Antique Row.

This is the same individual who wrote “Not Art” over the Obama Wall at 2643 Cherokee and the shamrock at 2608 Cherokee back in March.

The prosecuting attorney is recommending probation with a restriction that he is not allowed on Cherokee.

INCIDENT: Property Damage
LOCATION: 2600 Block of Cherokee
DATE/TIME: 7/10/09 @ 7:47 P.M.
SUSPECT: David Reeves, 51 year old White Male of the 3300 block of Jefferson Avenue

Police discovered the suspect spray painting the side of a building in the 2600 block of Cherokee. The suspect was taken into custody. On July 11, The Circuit Attorney’s office issued a warrant for Property Damage 2nd.
