Police Arrest Man For Defacing Mary Image

In Chicago...the amazing thing is that in a city as large as Chicago they couldn't find a phone listing for "Victor Gonzalez"...I would think there would be at least twenty or more people with that name living there...

From WFTV.com - News - Police Arrest Man For Allegedly Defacing Virgin Mary Image:

A man was arrested for allegedly scrawling 'Big Lie' over a stain on an expressway underpass that some believed was an image of the Virgin Mary.

Authorities then painted over the stain because it had been defaced, police spokesman David Banks said Friday.

Authorities charged Victor Gonzalez, 37, of Chicago with criminal damage to state supported property, a misdemeanor. Witnesses had seen him painting the image, Banks said. A telephone listing for Gonzalez could not immediately be found.
