Leanne Suter and ABC7.com staff report:
Hollywood residents awoke this morning to find the iconic Hollywood sign had been altered to read “Hollyweed” in an apparent New Year’s Day prank. The sign was vandalized about 3 a.m. by a male suspect who was recorded on surveillance video.
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 draped those letters with black tarps so they each appeared as a lowercase “e.”
