Austin Clay smashed the star with a pickaxe and called the police. Later, he came in the Beverly Hills police headquarters and pleaded guilty.

According to Clay, he came to Alley with a guitar case, from which he took out a pickaxe. It’s not the first time when the vandals destroy POTUS’ star.

During the mid-autumn of 2016, on the eve of the presidential election, a 53-year-old citizen of California named James Otis dressed in the uniform of a worker broke the president’s star with a sledgehammer and a pickaxe.

The criminals painted the star of Michael Jackson in the Hollywood Walk of Fame with red colour. The daughter of the pop king published a photo of how she washes the stove, even though the star does not really belong to her father.

Fans saw the pics she posted and noticed that there was a difference between the emblems, the star of the pop king depicts a disk, and this one had a microphone. It turned out that this star is not a singer, but a radio presenter – the full namesake of Michael Jackson.

However, Paris, realizing that the vandalism was directed against her father, personally washed the memorial.
