Torrence Police Arrest Man Charged With Vandalizing Chick-fil-A


LA Weekly:

Manny Castro, the self-described street artist who admitted he painted "Tastes Like Hate" on the side of a Torrance Chick-fil-A last week in response to the chicken empire's anti-gay-marriage stance, has been arrested, Torrance police tell the Weekly.

Sgt. Steven Jenkinson said Castro was collared in West Hollywood about 7 p.m. yesterday.

Castro is was arrested on suspicion of vandalism, according to Torrance police.

Although Castro admitted to the artwork in response to the Chick-fil-A CEO's stance against same-sex marriage, Torrance detectives say they developed independent evidence that leads to the provocateur.
