Art that adorns the flesh…

Trunk Trash

March 20th, 2009 by

Last week I posted a piece about an Idaho scratcher by the name of Andrew Walthall, who was on the lam after news of him tattooing some 15-year-olds and a 13-year-old and not properly sterilizing his needles, hit the news.  Walthall had been missing since March 6th when a warrant was issued for his arrest stemming from a misdemeanor charge of injury to a child.

Well, several minutes ago I discovered that Walthall was found and arrested at about 6pm on March 15th, by Caldwell, Ohio police.  At the time of his arrest, Walthall had been found hiding in the trunk of a car in a garage belonging to friends.  Aside from being charged with obstruction of justice, Walthall will also be charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Oh Andrew, Andrew, Andrew…this world was not meant for someone as simple as you.  Who the hell hides from the cops with drug paraphernalia on their possession?  Was he passing the time in that car trunk by blazing a nice rock?  I guess those sorts of questions are best left unasked, as they tend to overshadow the even greater question of who gives unlicensed tattoos to underage kids with gear bought off the internet?

Anyway, the most important thing here is that there is now officially one less scratcher out there.  Breathe easier.
