Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star was destroyed on Wednesday morning, the second time it has been completely demolished.

Around 3 a.m., a man described as 25-years-old “walked up with a guitar case and pulled out the pick axe. Then, it’s believed, he called police himself to report it, but left the scene before they got here,” tweeted Jonathan Gonzalez, reporter for NBC Los Angeles.

The suspect was taken into the LAPD custody around 6 a.m. Wednesday morning.

The star has been vandalized numerous times since President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign began, but it has only been destroyed twice. In 2016, 53-year-old James Lambert Otis ripped up the star using a jackhammer and a pickaxe. He claimed he was motivated by Trump’s comments on the infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which the then-reality-TV star bragged about groping women.
