Man accused of smashing Donald Trump's Hollywood star freed on bail

Man accused of smashing Donald Trump's Hollywood star freed on bail

Unfortunately, the star didn't succumb to Otis' pickaxe, and was "smashed into" lots of little pieces instead of being successfully extracted intact.

Los Angeles police said Thursday they have a suspect in custody on suspicion of vandalizing Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star with a sledgehammer and a pick ax. Trump has indicated his intention to sue the women after election day for lying about his character.

Otis said he did it because he was sick of Trump's "aggressive language and sexual violence toward women". He said he wanted to auction it off to raise funds for the 11 women accusing the presidential candidate of groping them.

Otis managed to remove the gold emblem from the middle of the star and damage the star itself and the area around it. "It all became very personal".

But while Colbert was critical of Trump's explanation during that interview with George Stephanopoulos, he did come to the GOP nominee's defense over the recent incident involving Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Det. Meghan Aguilar said investigators were called to the scene early Wednesday following reports that the presidential candidate's star was struck by blows from a hammer.

Donald Trump received the star in January 2007 for his success of the hit NBC TV show, "The Apprentice".

The words and deeds of Trump have disqualified him from having his star remain on that storied boulevard. In July, an artist installed a miniature wall topped with razor wire and "keep out" signs in response to Trump's vow to build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border to stem illegal immigration and drug smuggling. He urged Americans to express their anger toward a candidate by voting and not by destroying a property. According to Deadline, the offenses committed by Otis could result to upward of $10,000 in fines and a sentence of up to three years in jail, based on California laws.
