KILLEEN (November 14, 2012)—Charges were pending Wednesday against a vandal who was caught pink-handed after spray-painting a local church.

The man was arrested after an employee of Central Christian Church at 1301 Trimmier Rd. in Killeen saw him through a window that had been spray-painted pink

Officers arrived just after 7:30 a.m. Tuesday and found the man behind the church.

One of the messages the man left on the church read, "Metal = Death."

The man claimed to be the ambassador to Guam, church members said.

"He had a huge container of Bud Light, he had his shoes and socks off he was on his knees and he was just going to town having a good time and he was surprised by the police who roared up and captured him," Pastor Mark Bushor said.

Bushor said a church member was working to clean up the graffiti.
