Blotter: Art Vandal Strikes in Dining Room
Hoosier Homeschooler #2.003 | March, 2008
Authorities were called to the dining room of
an Alexandria residence at around 10 a.m. this morning to apprehend
an habitual art vandal for pouring a jug of white tempera paint
onto a dark green carpet and a collection of artwork.
The youth had broken into the family's art
supply cabinet and removed the lids of several new jugs of paint.
She was apprehended in the process of pouring the last of the
white paint onto the nearby carpet and a sketchbook containing
priceless family artwork.
The suspect was immediately taken into custody
to serve a two-minute sentence in the time-out chair on charges
of vandalism, destruction of personal property and wasting family
resources. She has since been released to family members on probation.
When asked why she would do such a thing, the
perpetrator replied, "Paint, right there."
The perpetrator is three feet tall, has curly
blond hair that is often pulled into two short ponytails at the
sides of her head, dark brown eyes, and a limited vocabulary.
Previous offenses include, but have not been limited to drawing
on furniture and walls with marker, drawing on highchair with
permanent marker, scribbling on homework papers, lesson plans
and artwork, ripping up important papers, feeding children's toys
and pencils to the puppy and breaking and eating crayons.
If you see this individual on the loose, authorities
strongly advise that you lock up your art supplies and return
her to her probation officers immediately.
