New York Lawmaker, Drinking Tea May Lead To Crime

A Queens lawmaker is asking store owners to pull Arizona Ice Tea off their shelves because he says the packaging glorifies graffiti. City Councilman Peter Vallone, Jr. who has spent years making an issue of graffiti in New York says.

"Apparently Arizona thinks this is something that should be glorified," "They've come out with a drink called All City. All City is the name for a vandal that has destroyed property in much of New York."

A statement on the Arizona's website says they are paying tribute to the passion and creativity street artists. Artists who have made their mark in all five New York boroughs.
