Two cops on break in a southside restaurant spotted a teen tagger and hurried to arrest him early Saturday.

The officers sat in the Whataburger at Roosevelt and Mitchell around 12:30 a.m.

They saw the 18 year-old spray-painting a nearby building.

When they tried to approach the teen, he took off running.

Police caught him two blocks away.

They say he is now charged with tagging and evading arrest.
