Austin Clay, the man who destroyed the US President Donald Trump’s Walk of Fame star in July, has to pay a fine of $ 10,000 (over 8,700 euros).
The court decided on Wednesday, The Blast writes . He has also been sentenced to a probationary period of three years and has to pay another $ 10,204.46 to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the organization behind the famous Walk of Fame in Hollywood.
The star-shaped tile with the name of Trump was completely destroyed in July and was not damaged, as in previous incidents.
Clay walked over the Walk of Fame with a guitar case. He grabbed a pickaxe from the suitcase at the site of Trump’s star and began chopping. The man then reported himself to the police.
The perpetrator took revenge because of Trump’s statements
Trumps tile was badly damaged in 2016. The perpetrator said that he retaliated because of Trump’s statements. It was about the notorious conversation between Trump and presenter Billy Bush.
The stars on the Walk of Fame carry names of people who have meant something in the world of television, film, radio, music or theater. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Walk or Fame Selection Committee determines each year who is added to the Walk of Fame.
