The California Highway Patrol has arrested a Vallejo man on suspicion of spray-painting a sound wall on eastbound Interstate Highway 80 in Fairfield on Thursday.

The CHP responded to a call about the tagging on I-80, west of Manuel Campos Parkway, around 9:45 p.m., CHP Sgt. Diana McDermott said.  

The two males who were tagging the wall fled through a hole in the fence that leads to Marigold Drive when they saw the CHP officers, McDermott said.

CHP officers found evidence at the scene that identified 24-year-old Cesar Arreguin of Vallejo as one of the taggers. He was arrested Friday and booked into the Solano County Jail for felony vandalism, McDermott said.

Investigators believe Arreguin and his associates are responsible for a recent rash of vandalism on freeways and private property in SolanoCounty, McDermott said.

McDermott said the vandalism usually occurs after dark making ithard to catch the vandals who cause thousands of dollars of taxpayer money to clean up.

The CHP plans to make more vandalism arrests in the future, McDermott said.

You are defending a 24 year old man that tags? What is wrong with you? Are you calling me racist? Sounds like you have a chip on your shoulder. It goes along with your lack of class and education. "Black Panther of Stupidity" might be a better moniker.

I am not defending this thug!!! Yes he should be punished to the full extent of the law according to his crime. But I find it funny how people can call out a small time criminal and ask for his head when we are in a recession that was created by eight years of rule under George W. Bush. And not a one of them have been called out on their misdeeds. Not Wall street, not the people who lied to us and got us into a war based on a lie, not the bankers, not no one. But you and others like you are quick to go after, with a vengence, a stupid, dumb kid for tagging. YOU AND YOUR LIKE ARE BULLIES...And not only that clean up your own city. Farifield wreaks of Social Stratification, racism, unemployment, poverty, etc, etc. Go to Fairfield City Hall and tell them about your dissastifaction about the evil that goes on in Fairfield. You wont because they are "TOO BIG TO TELL"!!!

George W. Bush has nothing to do with a thug damaging property that taxpayers have to foot the bill for. Neither does Wall Street. It's tiresome and boring to hear you throw out the "race card." If you are dissatisfied with your social and economic status in life...get off of your lazy butt and do something about it. It is not somebody else's fault. Look in the mirror if you want to se where the problem lies. Me and my "like?" Hmmm.... sounds awfully racist to me. No surprise there.

I'm glad they caught the person who was spray painting the walls, and the recent break in burglaries in the area. Vandalism invites bigger crime into the area and it also makes an area look awful and run down, not cared for. It also costs tax payers money and/or volunteer time to paint over it. Lastly, it shows disrespect. I'm not going to go into a whole political debate, because it is too complex.

you are a RACIST..all the time,,24 -7. NO MATTER WHAT you always take the criminals side ? a little guilt in your life ? or maybe just maybe ..hmm ? when someone spray paints a wall..it can cost thousands to have it "repaired". NO ONE has the right to DESTROY another persons property. NO ONE has the right to disrespect all of us hard working individuals who strive to DO WHATS RIGHT, despite all of "OBOMA's children" have to say about it. Take your hands and put them in your pockets. put those hands away, because it's time for the hand outs to end. END. He destroyed public property. With the financial straights cities are in, HOW DARE HE destroy "OUR" public property. we , who work, paid for that wall. we paid for the Police to protect, we paid for the upkeep of the wall, properties, the gas that is used in the Police cars. The electricity to power the jails. Maybe if a "criminal" is made to pay the costs associated with their incarceration, and they don't get out till it's paid. maybe ,,just maybe it will change. Come spray paint my wall, GO TO JAIL and PAY ME TO HAVE IT FIXED..RESTITUTION....make him pay for his crime. literally. not 3 hots and a cot.
