Even Banksy has to take a day off.

The mysterious British graffiti artist, who has been surprising New Yorkers with his random pieces throughout the five boroughs this month, posted this statement, "Today's art has been cancelled due to police activity," on the website for his project Wednesday.

There have been reports that cops threatened to ticket one of Banksy's crew members who transported his Ronald McDonald statue to a Lower East Side location, but the NYPD hasn't charged the artist with any crime.
