Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
HOUSTON (AP) - A man accused of vandalizing a 1929 Pablo Picasso painting in an act caught on cellphone video has surrendered to federal marshals at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Uriel Landeros, of Houston, turned himself over to marshals at the international bridge near McAllen, Texas. He told KPRC-TV of Houston that he has no regrets for the action.
Landeros had been charged last June with felony graffiti and criminal mischief for spray painting the artwork titled "Woman in a Red Armchair" at the Menil Collection in Houston.
The painting was damaged June 13 in an act caught in a 24-second video taken by a bystander and posted on YouTube. He left behind an image of a bullfighter, a bull and the word "conquista," the Spanish word for conquest.
