Remember this YouTube video we linked to back in October? Well it looks like Bucket, who is allegedly the dude bombing the 101 in the video has found both internet celebrity and police attention. According to LATIMES.com:

Authorities say Buket's moniker had adorned hundreds of freeway overpasses, concrete walls and transit buses across the state and southern Nevada. He is believed responsible for upward of $150,000 in property damage along the Los Angeles River and in the areas patrolled by the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department.

But sheriff's deputies said today that "Buket," could be out of commission for quite a while. The 24-year-old man was detained this morning when he showed up to meet his probation officer. He is expected to be booked on multiple charges of felony vandalism, sheriff's officials said. Law enforcement deals with hundreds of taggers across the city. But it is how and when Yazdani chooses to vandalize property that has earned him special attention from law enforcement, said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Augie Pando. "It's blatant disregard for other people's property," Pando said.

Rather than work clandestinely or under cover of darkness, sheriff's deputies say Buket prefers an in-your-face approach.
