The internet still making life un-fun for Round Rock teens

Juan Romero didn't want to get in trouble, he just wanted to show off some of his graffiti tags on his myspace page. Unfortunately they were the signature tags he used to tag the brand new Round Rock skate park and they were a felony punishable by up to two years in jail.


The cops used the myspace page to ultimately bust him, but they worked off a lead given to them by a passerby who recorded Romero's license plate with a camera phone.

double bummer

*Note: these are actual pics of the park, it's a beautiful work of art

How about one particular Round Rock teen making life unfun for skateboarders? They shut the bowl down until to grand opening because of this kook. 2 years in the joint does seem excesisve, but I bet he gets probation anyway. Either way, I'm glad the kook got busted.

Just let me clarify that I'm totally opposed to people tagging the park. I covered a story on the park's creation and was amazed at the passion of the skaters who advised ths city on their needs and that the city listened and chalked up the money for something that is quality. Again, Rachel is NOT for destruction of property or skaters not being able to do their thing in a totally awesome park. I was being sarcastic.
