A German tourist from Munich has been arrested in New Zealand for spraying graffiti on a glacier and nearby boulders. His punishment? Scrub it off the UNESCO World Heritage site.

The 28-year-old Bavarian has avoided being charged for his vandalism of mother nature, according to The Press newspaper. It took the man one and half days to rid the Franz Josef glacier and the surrounding boulders of the graffiti.

He defaced the national park on New Zealand's South Island last week with a spray can. But he was photographed by English tourists who then gave their evidence to the authorities. He was then promptly arrested by the police.
