LOS ANGELES — A “prolific” tagger, who goes by the moniker “REVOK”, was arrested Sunday at a graffiti art exhibit where he was a featured “artist.”

Jason Williams, 32, was taken into custody by LAPD detectives and officers from the California Highway Patrol at 4 p.m. at the 33rd Street Graffiti Art Store where a ” Montana Paint” exhibit was underway, featuring Williams’ work. Montana spray paint is a brand often used by taggers, according to Sgt. Augie Pando of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.

Williams was booked on suspicion of possession of vandalism tools and a counterfeit LAPD badge and receving stolen property, according to Lt. Erik Ruble of the sheriff’s Transit Services Bureau. He was released Monday morning after posting $20,000 bail, Ruble said.

Quote of the day from a sheriffs spokesperson:

“He’s being treated as a celebrity artist when in fact he’s breaking the law,” said Steve Whitmore, a sheriff’s spokesman.
