(Over-the-Rhine) -- Cincinnati Police arrested Street artist Yetiauge last night during Final Friday. He was at his first organized public art show during the monthly event along Main Street.

While he has been accused of vandalism, police say Yetiauge had an outstanding warrant for disorderly conduct.

Elliot James, his legal name, said on Facebook, "I'm disappointed in the system and the way the world works. I hope things will look brighter, the best day of my life just took the most dramatic course. For whoever called this in and pinched me, do you really think I'm done creating now? If anything my work will thrive because of this incident, and I will push forward."

James has a court appearance scheduled for Monday.
