OKLAHOMA CITY -

Charges have been filed against an Oklahoma City man who told investigators he was responsible for graffiti all over the city, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Oscar Briseno, 21, was already at the Oklahoma County jail on unrelated warrants, but agreed to talk to a detective with the Oklahoma City police Criminal Intelligence Unit, court documents said.

Police said at least five locations in Oklahoma City, including a dental office and the Oklahoma Blood Institute on the north side, were sprayed with the moniker "BUKET."

In that jail interview, Briseno claimed he is "BUKET" and is part of a tagging crew called CA, or Convict Art.

In 2008, reports said another man who claimed to be "BUKET" became an Internet sensation for this footage on YouTube of him spraying the word on a bridge above speeding traffic in Los Angeles in broad daylight.

Back here in Oklahoma City, investigators said Briseno admitted he applied graffiti seen in 69 total evidence photos. The documents alleged the total cost of damages to the City is $8,050.

Max Baker said took brake cleaner, a power washer and new paint to the tags at his business, American Transmissions.

“It took about a half a day to get it cleaned up,” he said.

He said he wanted it gone fast so it wouldn't push already cautious customers away.

Jail officials said Briseno was released two days after the interview with the detective on an automatic release due to a judge's orders.
