The graffiti artist dubbed “Penis Man” could be facing hard time after a SWAT team took him down in Phoenix … potentially ending a looooong string of vandalism. Yes, crime size matters.
Cops in Tempe, AZ say 38-year-old Dustin Shomer is behind the “Penis Man” spree — the words have been tagged all over Arizona State dorms, local businesses, municipal buildings and even the famous “A” landmark above the campus … dating back to November.
Shomer was arrested last weekend, and charged with 16 counts of aggravated criminal damage, 8 counts of criminal damage and 1 count of criminal trespass in the first degree.
The suspect says he was taken in a pretty ballsy raid — 25 heavily armed SWAT officers swarming his apartment complex before arresting him at gunpoint.
However, the alleged “Penis Man” says he’s getting the shaft … because he claims he’s just a copycat, and the REAL “Penis Man” is still at large.
He told the Phoenix New Times, “I’m not the original. There are hundreds of copycats with very distinctively different handwriting.”
Translation: Cops grabbed the wrong penis, man.
