LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested two men after they were caught using a fire extinguisher to spray paint the side of a building.

According to arrest reports, officers were called to the intersection of W. Breckinridge Street and S. 13th Street just after 1 p.m. on Tuesday, after someone reported that two men got out of a car with an Illinois license plate and began spray painting a building on S. 12th Street.

When police arrived, they allegedly found a blue vehicle with an Illinois license plate. Police say they also found two men -- 22-year-old Alexander Phelps and 20-year-old Matthew Marshall -- with spray paint on their bodies and clothes, and a large fire extinguisher that was dripping green paint.

Both men allegedly told police that they were just taking pictures of the building.

Police arrested them and charged them both with first degree criminal mischief, according to the arrest reports.
