Anarchist's home in Washington spray-painted

OLYMPIA – Several windows of a self-described anarchist’s east-side home were broken Tuesday night, and “Get Out of Oly” was spray-painted on the home’s exterior, according to Olympia police.

The residence is rented by Daniel Wilson, 20, who was arrested during a May Day protest in downtown Olympia in 2008. He later was convicted of malicious mischief and reckless endangerment for throwing a rock at a bank window.

Olympian photographer Tony Overman took a photo that day that helped police identify Wilson. Last month, Overman’s home and The Olympian’s building were tagged by graffiti labeling Overman a “snitch.” Overman initially denied showing police a photo of Wilson throwing a rock at the bank before the photo was published but later acknowledged that he had.

In an interview, Wilson said he had not called police and that he does not want to press charges.

“I don’t want anyone living in cages,” he said, adding that he arrived home Tuesday night to find police at his home.
