The SFPD arrested their bus smasher

Oct 31, 2012, 9:14 AM EDT

Yesterday the San Francisco Chronicle published this picture, and the police asked for the public’s help in tracking the vandal down:

They got him:

Police in San Francisco have arrested a 22-year-old man on charges of vandalism related to a public transit bus that was destroyed after the Giants won the World Series.

Gregory Tyler Graniss of San Francisco was taken into custody Tuesday on felony charges of vandalism and injuring or destroying a passenger transit vehicle.

Being an criminal mastermind like this guy is a lot harder than it used to be. Next time Dr. Evil here launches a sinister plot, he really should set off an electromagnetic pulse or something to disable all of the cell phone cameras in the area.

    “…injuring or destroying a passenger transit vehicle.”

    I was unaware that inanimate objects could be injured

      You need to re-watch the old 1959 C-movie SF clunker Atomic Submarine. Aliens build their vehicles with living tissue. Smash one of their buses and it heals itself. San Francisco is the logical place to field test this concept.

      Can I have another toke now?

        I bet he is a Pelosi supporter.

    It reminds me of the jackasses here in Seattle that talked to reporters and were filmed vandalizing the courthouse and businesses during the May Day “rallies”. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

      All of this pales by comparison with European and Latin American soccer fans, of course….do you know, and this is the Buddha’s troof, that English soccer hooligans book charter flights for the sole purpose of going to games on the continent to riot?

      No, really….

      Okay, okay, I undercut my credibility in my last post.

      But it’s still da troof.

      • dowhatifeellike - Oct 31, 2012 at 11:16 AM

        I believe those hooligans are required to update the local authorities on their location an hour before kickoff so that sort of thing doesn’t happen (but it still does).

      • Old Gator - Oct 31, 2012 at 12:17 PM

        They are for a set period of time, then free to behave like lobotomized apes again. And most of them just move to a different address, leave no forwarding, and blithely return to their usual modus at the first opportunity.

        How these idiots manage to hold a job long enough to afford the tickets on Ryan Air still baffles me – even though it’s Ryan Air. The dole by itself is an inadequate explanation.

    Thank God that is settled. The kids can go back to school and we can all sleep tight tonight.

    Threat Level back to sunflower.

      Warcraft reference. Another tubed-out troglodyte has found us.

      Prof Plum wasn’t aware of any of this; he was too busy snuggling Yvette’s shelf.

    Not exactly Public Enemy Number One, but completely unacceptable behavior. And hard to think of any excuse for it, except undoubtedly alcohol.

    With the usual proviso for “innocent until proven guilty”, I am glad that someone is being held responsible for that little bit of stupidity after the WS win.

    Stay classy San Fran!

    • Shafer's Dealer - Oct 31, 2012 at 10:27 AM

      or is it “Stay Classy Human Race”?
      I don’t think any large city is immune to the age-old herd effect.
      A few morons add to hundreds/thousands instantly.

        Please pass the jelly….?

  7. icanspeel - Oct 31, 2012 at 10:28 AM

    What a moron.. I can only imagine what he would have done if the Giants lost. Glad he was caught as what he did was beyond stupid.

  8. albertmn - Oct 31, 2012 at 10:52 AM

    So, will he try to claim in court that he found it that way, and was just pulling it out of the bus? Too often even idiots caught red-handed won’t confess to what they did.

  9. digbysellers - Oct 31, 2012 at 11:02 AM

    This man is a menace. He should be forced to find Bette Midler a black and white cookie. You are the wind beneath my wings.

  10. trickybastard - Oct 31, 2012 at 11:17 AM

    Awesome. Giants/49ers fans for years have talked shit about being classy when compared to Raiders fans.

    • Marty - Oct 31, 2012 at 11:22 AM

      Raider fans are trash by just showing up.

      • trickybastard - Nov 6, 2012 at 2:52 PM

        your mother is trash

  11. dowhatifeellike - Oct 31, 2012 at 11:17 AM

    I’m still trying to figure out how a bus costs a million dollars.

    • Marty - Oct 31, 2012 at 11:22 AM

      “Green upcharge”.

    • forsch31 - Oct 31, 2012 at 12:49 PM

      $700K is a million dollars? Must be the new math….

      • bayarea510 - Oct 31, 2012 at 1:34 PM

        The bus cost $700k but just had $300k worth of upgrades, so the bus is now worth a Million Dollars.

  12. sabatimus - Oct 31, 2012 at 2:44 PM

    That’s a glorious photo, complete with a near-full face shot. Have fun in court, moron.

    As per the twitter comments(which were hilarious), this ‘real G’ has been brought to justice. Hopefully he was booked downtown in those sweet skinny jeans…. Good work fellas.
