The jig is up, they said.
According to a small handful ot people on Twitter (about a million or so), the entity known as Banksy was arrested in London yesterday on charges of vandalism, conspiracy, racketeering and counterfeiting.
And the street artist and all around provocateur's name, it was revealed in a media conference that may or may not have happened, is Paul William Horner.
Or is it?
Readers who think they can verify the existence of London police chief Wayne Leppard—have at her!
In the meantime, we'll consider Banksy himself as a chief suspect in what looks like a hoax that just cost me a valuable 60 or so minutes of my work day, THANKS.
