Clyde 86 Knocked in NYC for Hitting Clean Trains
He faces 16 counts of criminal trespassing.
Aw, damn. So Clyde 86, from EHC (⬆Every Hood Crushed⬆), got bagged by the NYPD. According to the Daily News, he’s suspected of hitting 26 trains around the city over three years. 26 tho! The Texas transplant has been crushing the city, and while most pedestrians aren’t usually privileged to see any of those panels running, he’s got some hotboy street spots on smash for all to see. The corner below the J train’s Marcy stop in Brooklyn comes to mind.
But you can peep his underground work on the Gram. You might even have glimpsed some of his remnants. I still haven’t peeped any running panels yet, but I notice poorly buffed trains all the time. Last week I saw the faint remains of three pieces in one trip. To keep up with the extent of graffiti on MTA trains, click the follow button on @nyc_graff.
Back to Clyde though. That sucks, mane. He’s been charged with criminal mischief, making graffiti and criminal trespass for 16 separate incidents. Dude will likely have to go through Brooklyn, Manhattan and Bronx courts separately. This isn’t his first serious case though, he got popped for painting DC Metro trains a couple times as well. Stay up, bro.
