WATCH: Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star destroyed

Dominic Patten reports that Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star was destroyed early Wednesday morning by a man dressed as a city construction worker.

The vandal smashed it up with a sledgehammer and pickaxe—and was filmed doing so. Police didn't arrive in time to save it or arrest the culprit. [h/t Gina Loukareas]

The man, who told Deadline his name was Jamie Otis, said he was trying to extract the star to auction it off and raise funds for the women who have come forward to accuse Trump of sexually assaulting them over the decades. … The incident occurred around 5:45 AM with a few bystanders stopping to watch. An LAPD police cruiser showed up around 6:15, but Otis already had left the scene.
