LAPD Arrest Suspected Vandal Who Smashed Trump’s Walk of Fame Star

starThe Los Angeles Police Department announced that they’ve made an arrest in connection to yesterday’s felony vandalism of Donald Trump‘s Walk of Fame star on Hollywood Boulevard.

According to ABC 7, the LAPD did not confirm the suspect’s identity, but said he was arrested without incident and is currently being booked at the Men’s Central Jail. The man’s name and age will be released after the booking.

It was in the early hours of Wednesday when a man dressed as a construction worker destroyed The Donald’s star with a sledgehammer and a pick-axe. A man identifying himself as James Otis told several media outlets that he was responsible, saying that he originally wanted to steal and sell the star to pay for the legal fees of Trump’s sexual abuse accusers.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced yesterday that Trump’s star would be replaced.
