A known gang member now in state prison and wanted by Bartow County authorities is accused of "tagging" his Cartersville jail cell.

Justin Lee Clark, 23, of Acworth, a known member of Hall Street's Insane Gangster Disciples, had been assigned to a room in the Bartow County jail in which a "large amount of graffitti" was found covering the back of the door, according to a Bartow County Sheriff's Office incident report.

A deputy Saturday discovered the markings, which allegedly included gang symbols and the nickname "Lil J" carved into the paint. Authorities say Clark has a tattoo on his left arm displaying "Lil J."

Clark, who in connection with the markings was charged with criminal interference with government property, is serving a 15-year sentence on a Bartow burglary charge and 10 years in connection with a Cobb County incident last year.

Then a resident of Canton, Clark tried to strike a police officer with his car following an attempted traffic stop in Kennesaw, according to Cobb police. The chase ended when Clark crashed his vehicle into another car.

He is currently housed in state prison, but now has an outstanding warrant in Bartow County, according to Sgt. Jonathan Rogers.
