Street Artist Fairey Surrenders to Detroit Authorities

Authorities said, street artist Shepard Fairey, who created the "Hope" poster of Barack Obama in 2008, turned himself into Detroit police on Tuesday on charges he defaced several properties in the city. In addition to creating the four-color "Hope" image Obama used during his 2008 presidential campaign, Fairey is the man behind the "Obey" street-art sticker campaign. The Detroit Free Press reported he was released after authorities in Detroit chose not to extradite him and flew to Detroit on Monday evening.
