Green Paint Update

The woman arrested at the National Cathedral in Washington DC has appeared in court charged with felony destruction of property, which carries a statutory maximum of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. She is Jiame Tian, 58, a Chinese passport holder with a US visa that expired on Saturday. The judge ordered her to remain in custody until the next hearing, tomorrow. The picture shows a tourist photographing the statue of Abraham Lincoln, which still has some green paint left on it. Workers are using a solvent they hope will draw the paint out of the granite surface of the sculpture (CLICK).
