Woman In DC Arrested With Green Paint

Updated: Tuesday, July 30 2013, 09:14 PM CDT

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Prosecutors say a woman charged with defacing the Washington National Cathedral was carrying a soda can of green paint when she was arrested.


Jiamei Tian appeared in D.C. Superior Court on Tuesday alongside a Mandarin translator.


Prosecutors say the 58-year-old woman arrived in Washington a few days ago and was traveling on an expired visa. Police say she had no fixed address but told officers she lived in Los Angeles.


The woman, who has a Chinese passport, has been charged with defacing and destroying private property. A judge on Tuesday ordered her held without bond.


She was arrested Monday at the cathedral. Prosecutors and court documents say she has been linked to at least four other incidents of vandalism, including at the Lincoln Memorial, where paint was discovered Friday morning.
