Tucker spray-painted “Trump Rules” and “Black Bitch” on several cars in Philly.
The Daily Caller reported:
The culprit in what was initially believed to be a pro-Trump, anti-black act of vandalism in South Philadelphia earlier this month turns out to be a 58-year-old black man.
According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, William Tucker faces four charges related to the case. Police say that on Nov. 9, the day after Trump was elected, Tucker sprayed “Trump Rules” and “Black Bitch” on a white SUV owned by his 62-year-old neighbor, a black woman.
A tipster called police on Nov. 11 and identified Tucker. He was arrested on Nov. 22 and charged with four counts of criminal mischief. He was released on his own recognizance and will have a preliminary hearing on Dec. 8, The Inquirer reports.
The incident was covered on the news before it was known that the graffiti artist was black.
