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.”
