Graffiti vandal arrested, faces more charges


An accused vandal was captured early Wednesday morning in downtown Indianapolis. Marion County deputies and officers with
the U.S. Marshal’s Office arrested Miguel Villanueva at 2 a.m. in the 100 block of South Pennsylvania Street. Villanueva,
of Richmond, is a self-proclaimed “graffiti artist” who is suspected of leaving his tag, “Choke,”
on dozens of buildings in Indianapolis and around the country. He was wanted for failure to appear in court on several criminal
mischief charges. Prosecutors have filed nine counts of criminal mischief, all felonies, and one charge of criminal gang activity.
Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
