It was told that a man walked up with a guitar case and pulled out the pick axe. The vandal dropped the pickax at the scene. Then, it’s believed, he called police himself to report it, but left the scene before they got here. There were a number of witnesses to the destruction, including two security guards and a Walgreens worker who was on her way to work. Police said a man turned himself in at the Beverly Hills Police Department Wednesday morning. The star was in front of the Hollywood & Highland center, a major tourist spot in Hollywood.
The smashed star attracted people who took photos. Workers were sweeping up the shattered remains of the star early Wednesday. It was not immediately clear when repairs will begin. The Walk of Fame is administered by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which did not immediately issue a statement about the damage or repairs.Trump’s star has been a target of vandals numerous times. A street artist constructed a tiny wall around Trump’s star in July 2016. In 2016 it was destroyed by a man with a jackhammer and later was restored.
