The good people on the Internet helped San Francisco police track down the dude who they say vandalized the hell out of a Muni bus during the World Series celebration on Sunday night.

A photographer snapped this photo of the ballsy vandal and the Chronicle printed the picture, asking for help finding the guy. The photo also went viral on Facebook and other social media sites, and an online campaign started to find the bus-smasher.

And it worked.

Police were pleased to announce last night that they arrested

22-year-old Gregory Tyler Graniss on suspicion of felony vandalism and

injuring or destroying a passenger transit vehicle.

Investigators say they got enough evidence

related to the crime, which led them to the identity of the suspect. Graniss, a San Francisco resident, was arrested Tuesday at 7 p.m.; however, police wouldn't say what "evidence" was found at the crime scene since this is still an ongoing investigation.

was a senseless act of destruction and there is no tolerance for such

criminal behavior in San Francisco," says Police Chief Greg Suhr. "With

assistance from the public, investigators moved swiftly to identify

this suspect and make an arrest."
Anyone with information on the

vandalism of the Muni bus is asked to call the Special Investigations

Division at 553-1133, the anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or

text- a-tip to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD.

Now if only we could find the idiot who torched a Muni bus that same night.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
