NEWS///DENVER RECAP: SHEPARD FAIREY ARRESTED AT THE DNC, THE FULL STORY
A week after the DNC wrapped in snow-white Denver, CO, we bring you a first look at the mugshot from SHEPARD FAIREY‘s arrest on August 25 for “interference with police authority and posting unauthorized posters.” Taking a break from his duties hosting the pro-Obama “Manifest Hope” art show, Shep was busy plastering downtown Denver with his signature Obama posters when cops in full riot gear and guns drawn reportedly shouted “Get on the fucking ground or we’re going to kick you in the fucking head!” Fairey and his crew were then zip-tied, accused of being “anarchists” for wearing all-black outfits, and led to jail where he spent 15 hours eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and giving each other body cavity searches before pleading out to the police interference charge with six months unsupervised probation and a $100 fine. Hopefully, as First Artist under an Obama administration, Fairey and his ilk will have diplomatic street immunity for at least four years. HAVE A LOOK:
