2 Pa. teens cited for parking lot chalk drawings

Aug 10, 2012, 11:13 PM

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) – Two teens in suburban Philadelphia were cited for doodling on the street with chalk, police said.

The Doylestown Intelligencer reported Friday (
http://bit.ly/P9IvKa) that 18-year-old Connor Logan and a 17-year-old friend drew a whale and sea turtles in a parking lot.

Doylestown Police Chief James Donnelly said that although chalk washes off, the drawings are “an attempt at vandalism.”

The doodles might link the teens to chalk graffiti on buildings and businesses in town, Donnelly said.

Logan told the newspaper that he found the chalk in the parking lot Tuesday night while waiting for friends. He said he’s never done graffiti.

“I just thought drawing on the street with chalk was a harmless, harmless thing,” he said.

The teens face summary citations, which come with a fine to be determined by a district judge.

The drawings already have been washed away by rain.
