LOS ANGELES, CA — A 30-year-old artist from Pomona, California, was arrested Monday in connection with altering the Hollywood sign to read “HOLLYWeeD” on New Year’s Day, police said.
Zachary Cole Fernandez surrendered at 12:10 P.M. to LAPD detectives in Hollywood, according to Captain Cory Palka. He was booked on suspicion of trespassing, a misdemeanor offense, and released on $ 1,000 bail two hours later.
At around 3 A.M. on January 1, police said surveillance footage showed a lone male suspect dressed in black, tactical-style gear scaling the sign and hanging tarps over O’s to change them to E’s. The sign was not damaged during the prank.
