2 American tourists caught carving names into Rome's Colosseum
Two American tourists now have a criminal record in Italy after they were caught carving their names into Rome's Colosseum, according to The Guardian.
The visiting Californians snuck away from their tour group on Saturday and began scratching their initials into the amphitheater walls using a coin, The Guardian reported.
Police caught the pair but not before they managed to carve a "J" and an "N" around 3 inches high into the Colosseum wall. The paper also reports that the women took a selfie with their carvings.
The young women, aged 21 and 25, were cited for "aggravated damage to a building of historical and artistic interest," according to The New York Post.
