Tourists Gone Wild: Find Out Why a Selfie Got These Girls Arrested!

Two U.S tourists were arrested in Rome, Italy, after they carved their names into the walls of the Colosseum and then took a selfie. The young women (21 and 25 years old) from California were reported to security by other tourists who saw them scratching the historical building with a coin. The girls went to Rome as a part of a larger group, but got separated from the others in order to put their plan into practice. The two engraved the letters J and N, their names initials, and then made sure they had a selfie to prove it. Authorities have charged the women with “aggravated damage on a building of historical and artistic interest.”
