According to The Lo-Down, French artist, Invader, was taken under police custody while making his mark on New York City's Lower East Side. Police apprehended the space-invading mosaic artist putting the finishing touches on Super Mario Bros.' Princess Daisy (Luigi's crush) on 90 Orchard Street. Invader successfully finished several pieces in the days leading up to his arrest.

Mark Miller, owner of 90 Orchard Street -- who also runs an art gallery in the building -- had the mosaic removed and the area scrubbed clean. Miller is keeping the mostly intact artwork in his possession, but has no plans to sell it.
