HOLLYWOOD HILLS (FOX 11/ CNS) – Misdemeanor trespassing charges– in essence, a traffic ticket– await the man dressed in black who scaled the landmark “Hollywood”sign to again transform it to read “Hollyweed.”City of Los Angeles security cameras that are locked on the renowned sign caught a man dressed in black as he scaled down the indication, and thoroughly positioned tarps on the structure to make it check out “Hollyweed.”
The dirty deed was perpetrated at about 3 a.m., according to Sgt. Person Juneau of the LAPD’s Security Services.The tarp was completely removed about 11:15 a.m. and the signs restored back to “Hollywood,”inning accordance with a watch sergeant at the LAPD’s Security Services Department.
“It was just someone. He was dressed in black. He was tactical,” Juneau stated. “We have crews now taking it (the tarp) down. The surface is extremely rough, so you have safety to be considered. The occurrence is being investigated as misdemeanor.”
Citizens hired to report the change about 5 a.m., he said.Guess I live
in Hollyweed now
