Franklin police early Friday morning arrested a Nashville man they believe spray-painted several downtown signs and poles as well as a downtown restaurant.

A sergeant patrolling downtown Franklin in an unmarked car saw James R. Solomon, 28, in an alley at Main Street and Fourth Avenue at 4:26 a.m. He had cans of spray paint, and nearby, police found a cardboard stencil he allegedly used.

Solomon, of 1701 Long Ave. in Nashville, was charged with vandalism and released on $5,000 bond. He is due in court Sept. 9.

If proven guilty, they should shave his head and punish him in part by stenciling his forehead with a court-ordered "I AM A DOPE!" or something like that. Why would anyone drive all the way from Nashville to Franklin to do something so stupid, let alone do it anywhere.
