Police arrested a 20-year-old man and two juveniles early Thursday morning for allegedly “tagging” an Interstate 440 overpass with graffiti.

An officer reported finding Ellis Worstall, along with a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old, on the Sharondale Drive bridge at 3:30 a.m. with fresh paint and black permanent marker “tags” nearby.

The 15-year-old allegedly had a backpack with cans of spray paint matching the colors of the graffiti on the bridge.

According to police, Worstall was also charged last August with spray painting graffiti on a 20th Avenue South business. On Thursday, he was charged with underage alcohol consumption, vandalism and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The two teens face Juvenile Court charges of vandalism and violating the juvenile curfew.

Jail the adult max sentences for everything to be served without parole. Jail the minors with probation for community service for the sength of sentence. Bill the parents and charge them with child neglect. Make it hard.
