Yeesh! On August 10th, Water Bureau Director David Shaff issued some pretty strong words to whomever was crapping up Keller Fountain by filling it with soap.
“We are working with police and the bureau’s security specialists to prevent future incidents. We’d prefer not to go into too much detail on this — but we will see that legal remedies are pursued as we can. What’s happening at Keller is criminal activity,” read Shaff’s message.
Well, now we know what he meant. The Water Bureau’s blog (have I told you before how much I like the Water Blog?) has a photo of Nolan Cunningham, age 19, who was cited by the Police Bureau with dumping detergent in the fountain. His case has been referred to the district attorney’s office.
“We’re naming names – and showing his picture as a deterrent to other people who may think that shutting down a major downtown attraction for a couple of days is fun,” Shaff writes.
“We’re busy protecting public health and safety and the water system infrastructure and shouldn’t have to waste our time and effort on this sort of thing. We will prosecute offenders we catch and we will charge them for the water we have to dump. People up to mischief: think twice.”
Don’t fuck with David Shaff.
For the sake of balance, here’s a photo of Shaff and Commissioner Randy Leonard.
