Miranda rights weren't required at the time as the police weren't actually trying to question her. All they needed was probable cause to arrest her and the police already had that as they witnessed her defacing property.
I wouldn't be surprised if she ends up with a misdemeanor battery charge for the spray paint. The graffiti charge is nothing compared to a battery charge. The girl has no idea what free speech is.
