SAN ANTONIO -

A suspected 16-year-old tagger was arrested early Monday morning after he was caught vandalizing a new city park on Michigan Avenue.

San Antonio police said the teen was caught just after midnight tagging the basketball hoop backboards.

Neighbors spotted the teen climbing the fence and called police. Police said he was caught with paint all over him.

An estimated $500 worth of damage was done to the park, which is only a month old.

San Antonio police said the teen will now be charged with a felony since the park is city property.
