The wally who attacked a Picasso in the Menil Collection (Texas) in June has at last been arrested. From Fox News:

Seven months later, Uriel Landeros, 22, turned himself over to marshals at the international bridge near McAllen, Texas on the U.S.-Mexico border.

"I don't regret anything that I've done," Landeros told KPRC-TV of Houston in an interview.

Landeros was charged in June with felony graffiti and criminal mischief for vandalizing the 1929 artwork at the Menil Collection in Houston.

It'll be interesting to see how his punishment matches up to the two years in jail for the similar Rothko attack here in London.
