This past weekend Daniel Kimery was caught vandalizing the Christopher Columbus Statue that keeps watch over Columbus Circle in NYC.

This is Mr. Kimery's 13th brush with the law since he took up residence in the Big Apple with most of his prior arrests consisting of public drunkenness, public urination, and criminal trespassing charges.
