The suspect, James Lambert Otis, 52, faces one felony count of vandalism. He’s scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.
Otis is accused of using a pick axe and a sledgehammer to smash the president-elect’s star last month, according to prosecutors. He then allegedly removed a brass medallion from the middle of the star.
If convicted, Otis faces a maximum sentence of three years in jail. His bail is set at $20,000.
The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.
