Authorities say they’ve found a man who allegedly spray painted racial slurs on a Madison Heights plasma center last fall, thanks to a video game reference on the shirt he was wearing. 

Marc Stephen Porzondek, 43, was arrested last Thursday, WDIV reports. Prosecutors have charged him with felony ethnic intimidation and misdemeanor malicious destruction of property in connection the October incident. The hateful messages read "n-word go home" and referenced the Klu Klux Klan.

Porzondek became a person of interest after an officer saw him wearing a Minecraft Creeper hoodie that matched the one in surveillance footage. The pair also had the same physical description.
