Authorities revealed today that Neo-Nazi and Canadian hate-crime fugitive Craig Cobb’s arrest over the weekend stemmed from an incident involving a former follower of the racial purist.

According to local prosecutors, after other white supremacists in Leith learned that Cobb possessed “sub-Sarahan African” DNA, one of them — currently not identified by name by the police — spray-painted “BACK IN BLACK” on Cobb’s house.

Grant County Assistant State’s Attorney Todd Schwarz told the Los Angeles Times that the man “painted on the house, ‘BACK IN BLACK,’ and he’s not an AC/DC fan.”

It was this graffiti that led Cobb and a follower to “patrol” the streets of Leith over the weekend. The pair were arrested and charged with three counts of terrorizing.

“I’ve got a small community that is absolutely justified in being in fear of this man and his escalation,” Schwarz added. “But ‘BACK IN BLACK’ — there’s got to be some irony in it.”
