The High Life: Vandal Changes "HOLLYWOOD" Sign To "HOLLYWeeD"
Sunday, 01 January 2017

In celebration of California's new law legalizing recreational marijuana use, some Cali stoners decided to vandalize the state's famed "HOLLYWOOD" sign overnight by changing it to read "HOLLYWeeD."

 Unfortunately, the LAPD noted that there is constant video surveillance of the sign so the vandal, who apparently pulled off this amazing feat solo, will almost certainly be caught.  Poor guy finally gets to avoid the pokey for tokin' up but is going to end up in jail anyway.



As ABC adds, the sign was vandalized about 3 a.m. by a male suspect who was recorded on surveillance video, said Lt. Guy Juneau of the Los Angeles Police Department's Security Services Division. 

Dressed in all black, the unidentified vandal scaled Mount Lee, made his way over a fence and then climbed onto each of the landmark's "O" letters, the lieutenant said. He then draped those letters with black tarps so they each appeared as a lowercase "e."

The suspect remained at large hours after the incident. If arrested, he would face a misdemeanor trespassing charge, according to the LAPD. The agency also notified the city's Department of General Services, whose officers patrol Griffith Park and the area near the sign.

As TMZ pointed out, someone also pulled off the same stunt in 1976 but it ultimately took 40 years for their dreams to come true.
