Promposal Vandalizes National Monument in Colorado

The Colorado National Monument was vandalized by an unidentified culprit who decided to spray-paint a promposal across it.

The vandal tagged the monument with the invitation to prom in graffiti, along with the comments "I promise to love you forever and always" and "you're perfect to me."

The vandal could face three to six months in prison or a fine of up to $500 if caught, CNN reported.

Authorities are determined to nab the suspect.

Images of the vandalism were shared to the Colorado National Monuments official Facebook page along with requests that anyone with information that could lead to the identification of the suspect come forth.

Ranger Frank Hayde, a representative for the monument, said that in the past they have been successful in solving similar cases of vandalism and in this instance, he was hopeful that they would catch the person responsible.

"If this person, who might very well be a young person, were to come forward, we might be much more lenient," Hayde said, according to CNN. "What better way to impress your date than to show that you're the type of person who will take responsibility for their actions?"

Vandalism at local parks is rife and has become a nuisance for officials.

"We know that most people come here and visit the parks because of their natural beauty, or habitat or the natural qualities that the park has, and then seeing something like graffiti or vandalism, it really detracts away from the beauty of the park," said the city of Boulder's Ranger Operations Supervisor Geoff Jasper, according to KDVR.

The implications of committing vandalism to a national monument can be severe, as was proven recently when graffiti artist Casey Nocket was banned from national parks around the country after she pleaded guilty to seven misdemeanor counts of damaging government property after defacing rocks at various parks in 2014.
