PROVIDENCE, R.I. The man accused of leaving unsolicited tattoos on the Big Blue Bug is charged with a crime and court-ordered to leave the giant termite alone.
Nathan Beaumier, 25, of Providence, turned himself in on an arrest warrant Tuesday to face a charge of painting graffiti on “Nibbles Woodaway,” the 58-foot bug that overlooks Route 95 to advertise Big Blue Bug Solutions pest-control company.
The crime was discovered by company officials on June 5, when they came in to work and noticed that Nibbles had somehow acquired giant tattoos on both sides of its body over the weekend. While the company does enjoy dressing up the giant termite for the holidays, this wasn’t the look it wanted for the oddball icon.
Nibbles’ fans didn’t like it either. After police released a photo of Beaumier and asked for help tracking him down, some people posted angry and threatening comments on his Facebook page, advising him to leave Rhode Island and kill himself for allegedly defacing the bug.
Beaumier has posted photos on social media of various tattoos that he designed, as well as his own graffiti. Social media is also what gave his identity away, according to police.
The graffiti incident was posted to Instagram, and Detective Kenneth Court got several anonymous tips that one of the people seen spray-painting Nibbles went by the street names “Agen” and “Nate,” according to an affidavit filed in court Tuesday.
“Agen” is actually Beaumier, whom the police know from previous graffiti arrests and whose work is usually signed with “GDC” and “LMA.” The graffiti on his Instagram page was the same as the graffiti on Nibbles’ left side, and the man on the ladder in the photo looked like Beaumier, according to the affidavit.
Beaumier’s lawyer Chad Bank said that he was still getting information about the case against his client. Beaumier pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of graffiti defacing commercial property, which carries penalties of a fine up to $1,000 and up to 200 hours of community service for the first and second offenses.
Beaumier was released on $100,000 personal recognizance and ordered not to have any contact with the Big Blue Bug.
Maj. David Lapatin said that the investigation is ongoing, and more people may be involved.
