The latest guy to vandalize Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star seems to be a guitarist

If you’ve ever walked down Hollywood Boulevard after dark, you’ll have seen some of the interesting humans who appear once the sun goes down. It’s like someone flips a switch at central casting signaling for all the weirdos to come out.

At around 3:30 am on July 25, a guy with a guitar case walked purposely towards Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He put down the guitar case, opened it and took out a pickaxe. Then he began to hammer away at the star until nothing was left of it.

The latest news says that the alleged vandal, one Austin Mikel Clay, called the police on himself at 3:33 am. And although he left the scene before the cops showed up, he was later arrested on vandalism charges and jailed on a $20,000 bond.
