A man who was captured on a mobile phone video while damaging a 1929 Pablo Picasso painting has surrendered to US marshals at the Mexico border.
Uriel Landeros, 22, of Houston, turned himself over to marshals at the international bridge near McAllen, Texas, on Tuesday.
“I don’t regret anything that I’ve done,” Landeros told KPRC-TV of Houston in an interview.
Landeros was charged in June with felony graffiti and criminal mischief for spray painting the artwork titled Woman in a Red Armchair at the Menil Collection in Houston.
