HOUSTON - 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.
