AKIPRESS.COM - A 30-year-old artist was arrested on Monday in a prank where white tarps were used to make the “Hollywood” sign to read “Hollyweed”, according to the Los Angeles police department.

Zachary Cole Fernandez, 30, turned himself in on Monday, just over a week after the prank and was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor trespassing.

The prankster was recorded by security cameras in the area changing the sign early New Year’s Day.

Fernandez, an artist, had already claimed credit for the stunt in a Vice magazine interview, but police had not previously confirmed his involvement.

He’ll be released on his own recognizance and must return to court 15 February. Neither Fernandez nor his attorney could be immediately reached for comment.
