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.
