Teacher Caught Red-Handed Painting the Town Black

Police in Fukuoka arrested a 26-year American last Thursday on charges of "damaging a structure," according to Saturday's Mainichi Shimbun. Antonio Reed Jnr., who police say gave no address and claimed to be an English teacher, was caught spray painting graffitti on an apartment building in the center of the city at about 4:50am. The building is in the Daimyo area of Chuo ward and is occupied by personnel from the Ministry of Public Management, Home Affairs, Posts and Telecommunications. Reed is said to have painted an area some 2m high and 8m wide in black paint. He says he recently arrived in Japan and has no idea about the "rakugaki." The report said he wasn't in possession of an airline ticket or an alien registration card.
