VALLEJO (CBS/AP) – A Vallejo man was facing vandalism charges after authorities said 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.READ MORE: UPDATE: Atmospheric River Crashes Onshore; Flood Warning Issued For Napa, Sonoma Counties

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.MORE NEWS: Stephen Curry Reaches 5,000 Assists, Warriors Beat Kings 119-107
