DETROIT - Damage to illegally tagged buildings in Detroit that led to charges against graffiti artist Shepard Fairey is estimated at around $30,000. The figure was presented Thursday by a Detroit city attorney during a pretrial conference for Fairey. Three of the nine properties listed in court are city-owned.
