A 52-year-old man has been charged with the vandalism of Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
James Otis is accused of using a pick axe and sledgehammer to smash the star on October 26. Prosecuters said that Otis removed a brass medallion from the middle of the star during the incident.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said he faces up to three years in jail if convicted.
Police continue to investigate the incident while Otis is due to appear in court at Foltz Criminal Justice Centre in Los Angeles today.
