‘HOLLYWeeD' Prankster Case Could be Presented to Prosecutors

The result of November's election gave the purported pranksters "the final push" to change the Hollywood sign, they told Vice

Days after a prankster scaled a fence and altered the Hollywood sign to read "HOLLYWeeD," Los Angeles police detectives say they plan to submit their case to prosecutors for possible prosecution.

Officer Aareon Jefferson said Wednesday that investigators are talking to a possible suspect in connection with the trespassing case, but declined to name the person.

Jefferson says detectives would not arrest the prankster on suspicion of misdemeanor trespassing, but would instead present their findings to the district attorney's office. Prosecutors would then decide whether or not to file charges.

Police began investigating after a person used giant tarps to change the sign sometime on New Year's Eve or early New Year's Day.

The prankster, dressed in black, was recorded by security cameras.
