The Hollywood Sign was Changed by Vandals to Hollweed

The Hollywood sign really did read “HOLLYWeeD” for a few hours on New Year’s Day. Police were investigating Sunday after a prankster used giant tarps to turn two of the iconic sign’s white Os into Es sometime overnight. The vandal, dressed in all black, was recorded by security cameras and could face a misdemeanor trespassing charge, said Sgt. Robert Payan. The person scaled a protective fence surrounding the sign above Griffith Park and then clambered up each giant letter to drape the coverings, Payan said.
