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.
So this just happened again… somebody used a pick axe to destroy Donald Trump’s star on the Walk of Fame. Still trying to learn more, but we know it’s been vandalized multiple times, just never on this level. @NBCLA ?: Victor Park/Loudlabs pic.twitter.com/lzq7YrsSRV

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.
