A 34-year old "high profile graffiti vandal" was arrested Thursday morning at LAX by sheriff’s deputies as he attempted to board a plane to Ireland. "Suspect Jason Williams, also known as “Revok,” is well known in the graffiti vandalism culture and is a member of the graffiti crew “Mad Society Kings” or MSK," notes a police release.

Williams, a white male resident of the Fairfax District, had been placed on probation for felony vandalism in Indio, CA in 2009 and reportedly had a warrant for his arrest for failure to pay restitution to the victims of previous vandalism crimes.

Notes the release:

"In 2010, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Special Problems Unit Transit deputies arrested Suspect Williams near a graffiti store where images of his graffiti vandalism were featured. He was arrested with several hundred cans of spray paint and a replica Los Angeles Police Department badge."
