Of all the places to graffiti a police car, right in front of a police officer is probably not the best bet.
Nanaimo RCMP say a 24-year-old man was arrested Sunday in connection with spray painting a local Mountie’s police vehicle.
Mounties were called out at around 9 a.m. to a Tim Horton’s located on Wallace Street in Nanaimo. Officers were responding to an unrelated incident of spray painting at the business.
Store employees told the officer someone had spray painted their floor but had left just before the police arrived.
As the officer began to take photos of the damage, someone yelled out “they’re painting your car,” according to police.
The officer ran outside and and found a person standing on the hood of the police vehicle painting the windshield.
But even as the officer approached, police allege the man didn’t stop and then spray painted the side of the police vehicle.
The man is now facing two charges of mischief.
