The “Star Wars” icon shared images of himself with a jackhammer on the Walk of Fame but insisted that he wasn’t responsible for the vandalism.
He even provided an “iron-clad alibi.”
Hamill’s tweeted images were from a “Jimmy Kimmel Live” segment recorded earlier this year, just before Hamill received his own Walk of Fame star. In the bit, Hamill appeared to take a jackhammer to Kimmel’s star to make room for his own. When Kimmel mentioned that Trump’s star was just across the street, Hamill ran off as if he was going to jackhammer that one as well.
The actual suspect in Wednesday’s vandalism was 24-year-old Austin Clay, who police said called to report the crime and then turned himself in, according to the Los Angeles Times. He was booked on suspicion of felony vandalism.
James Otis, who attacked Trump’s star in 2016, will pay for Clay’s $20,000 bail, TMZ reported. Otis pleaded no contest for his act of vandalism and was sentenced to three years of probation and 20 days of community service. He also had to pay $4,400 to replace the star.
