It was a hoax.
was it Porn Stache?
“We had a 24-hour Anti-Graffiti Task Force monitoring different groups where Banksy was known to frequent.
War on Terror--no
War on graffiti-yes
A hoax story about street artist Banksy being arrested in Watford has duped internet users.
US website National Report alleged the Metropolitan Police had held the elusive graffiti artist after he was traced by a "24-hour Anti-Graffiti Task Force".
It claimed his art studio in the capital had been raided and “thousands of dollars of counterfeit money along with future projects of vandalism” found.
The story also said documents identified the anonymous artist as 35-year-old Paul Homer, from Liverpool.
He was said to be in custody “without bail on charges of vandalism, conspiracy, racketeering and counterfeiting”.
However, Scotland Yard confirmed the story - which left Banksy's name trending on Twitter - was fake.
A spokesman said: "We are certainly not aware of Banksy being arrested in Watford, or anywhere else for that matter."
Did anyone see "Exit Through The Gift Shop"? That was a really good documentary and supposedly was all a hoax designed by Banksy.
really? I really enjoyed that movie
OMG I hope your hoax post isn't a hoax
You saw it, and didn't know he made it?
Well, all of the other artists were real but the main guy, Thierry Guetta(I think that was his name; it's been a while since I saw the movie), was totally fake and Banksy just wanted to show how anyone could become a "street artist" and "sell out" and make a hell of a lot of $$$$$$$.
