Maverick artist Banksy has been arrested on charges of vandalism, conspiracy, racketeering and counterfeiting and his identity revealed, according to Jezebel. Police Chief Wayne Leppard said:

We received word that around 2am a group of individuals left a flat speculated to be one of Banky’s art studios. This group was followed by agents and once vandalism had occurred, we then arrested the group, 5 men total. These individuals all had ID on them except for one, and that is the one we believed to be Banksy…We then raided the studio where this group was last seen leaving from. Inside we found thousands of dollars of counterfeit money along with future projects of vandalism. We also found a passport and ID of a Paul William Horner who matched the description of the man that we are currently holding.

@princessstomper The good news is it turned out to be a hoax. A very well orchestrated hoax. – @TribesmanSen
