A teenage tagger last Saturday night aimed his spray paint can at an unlikely target: the LAPD Northeast Division station in Glassell Park. The tagger, who is between the age of 14 and 18, hit the San Fernando Road station in three different spots during the incident early Saturday morning, according to Lt. Stacy Spell. Officers apprehended the suspect, who was under the influence of alcohol and had spray paint on his fingers,  after they were flagged down by a witness, Spell said.

“He was trying to make a name for himself and his gang,” Spell said. But it “was bad timing on his part.”
