Borf captured!

Only a few of you will know what I'm talking about, but I'm going to post it anyway.

Borf got arrested yesterday:

The mysterious, ubiquitous and eminently destructive graffiti artist known as Borf was arrested yesterday after waging a months-long campaign that may have been intended to enlighten Washington, but mostly just confused us.

The man primarily responsible for Borf is, it turns out, an 18-year-old art student from Great Falls named John Tsombikos, according to D.C. police inspector Diane Groomes. He was arrested along with two other young men in the wee hours of yesterday morning after officers received a tip that graffiti artists were spray-painting at Seventh and V streets NW.

It turns out that he gave an interview to the Washington Post a few months ago. Click the link for the full story.
