The Wall Street Journal reports that a man who allegedly defaced two works by the street artist Banksy in Park City, Utah has been charged with criminal mischief.

The works—which, remember, were themselves defacement—depicted, according to The Journal, “an image of a videographer filming a flower” and a “a silhouette of a boy kneeling and praying,” probably to like Mickey Mouse or a McDonalds sign or something.

The alleged vandal of vandalism faces a fine of up to $10,000 and up to 15 years in prison. Read more at The Wall Street Journal.
