A north Texas man stands accused of tagging a Denton, Texas police car with a “F*ck the Police” message and other acts of vandalism.

Officers with the Denton Police Department had placed a marked but unmanned police cruiser along a highway to deter speeders. Figuring out that the car was empty, Joseph Porter Fishburn allegedly spray-painted the anti-police message on the car and slashed all four tires, according to officials.

The incident occurred on September 3, according to CBSDFW-11 in Dallas. A caller notified police of the vandalized vehicle at about 6 a.m. In total, officials said the vehicle received about $2,500 in damage. In addition to the spray-painted profanities and slashed tires, Fishburn also allegedly broke the spotlight on the car. The vehicle was also tagged with an anarchist symbol.

At the time, police officials stated they had no suspects in the case. The arrest of Fishburn was announced Monday night when the Denton Police tweeted out photos of the vandalized patrol car.

A couple of minutes later, they tweeted out Fishburn’s mugshot.

No announcement has been made as to the charges that will be filed against Fishburn or what his bond will be. Jail records at the Denton County jail reveal a Joseph Porter Fishburn with previous three previous arrests for evading arrest or detention with a vehicle.
