New, 27 comments

The LA Times reports that tagger "Buket," aka Cyrus Yazdani was sentenced today to three years and eight months in state prison for charges related to vandalism. "Sheriff's officials said they had evidence that Yazdani had marked hundreds of freeway overpasses, concrete walls and transit buses across the state and southern Nevada. Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies and officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers identified at least 20 "Buket" scrawlings along a stretch of the river spanning a couple of miles, causing an estimated $60,000 in damage." And of course, there's this notorious video from 2007 of Buket hanging above the 10 freeway. [LA Times]
