“Tagger Arrested for Tagging Courtroom While Awaiting Prosecution for Tagging”

So funny, from Lowering the Bar: Tagger Arrested for Tagging Courtroom While Awaiting Prosecution for Tagging – Lowering the Bar.

My usual appetizer course:

Is it worth doing jail time to become a legendary tagger at the ripe old age of 18? Francisco Canseco is probably about to find out.

“Tagging” is sometimes used to mean “graffiti” in general, but more specifically refers to a form of graffiti in which the person identifies himself or herself by writing a personal “tag.” While a tagger doesn’t use a real name, obviously the tag is associated with an individual and so once the association becomes known to authorities, continued use of the tag may be risky.

I suppose if you tag the inside of a courtroom while waiting for a hearing on 31 counts of vandalism based on your prior use of that same tag, you probably don’t care much about that risk.
