Calif. man suspected of painting crosswalk

VALLEJO, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California man is facing vandalism charges after authorities say he painted a crosswalk on a street, allegedly telling officials it was needed.

Fifty-two-year-old Anthony Cardenas was arrested Thursday morning in Vallejo and booked into Solano County Jail on suspicion of felony vandalism. Solano County Sheriff’s Lt. Brad DeWall says workers spotted Cardenas committing the vandalism at a city intersection.

The intersection already has three crosswalks.

DeWall says Cardenas also painted lines through those.

State transportation workers painted over Cardenas’ alleged crosswalk later in the day. A police cadet had been posted at the intersection until then to keep pedestrians from using it.

Cardenas remained behind bars Friday on $15,000 bail. Dewall says he did not have an attorney.
