A 31-year-old man was arrested Sunday night after residents saw him spray-painting his moniker in huge letters on a wall in Montrose, police said.

Richard Cordova was taken into custody about 11:35 p.m. on Honolulu Avenue and Wickham Way after police spotted him trying to flee the scene, Glendale Police Officer Matt Zakarian said.

He allegedly spray-painted his moniker in nearly 5-foot-tall by 4-foot-wide letters.

The tagging was not gang-affiliated, but detectives were still investigating the incident, Zakarian added.
