Vanessa Hudgens & Austin Butler Could Go to Jail for What They Did on V-Day
Vanessa Hudgens can NOT catch a break. Two weeks after the 27-year-old High School Musical alum lost her father to Stage IV Cancer, the night before she gave a once-in-a-lifetime performance via Grease: Live, she and her longtime boyfriend, 24-year-old Shannara Chronicles actor Austin Butler, are under criminal investigation for what they allegedly did on their Valentine’s Day 2016 date.
Over the weekend, the couple of 4 1/2 years headed up to Coconino National Forest for a romantic getaway; Vanessa made this clear in a series of Instagram pictures & a video captioned with the hashtag #sedonadreams:
Unfortunately, one such snapshot, which has since been deleted, is causing quite the stir among law enforcement officials. Here it is for reference:
While it may seem like an innocent photo to some, others call it a desecration of an Arizona treasure. According to TMZ, federal law prohibits anyone from “damaging natural surfaces or property of the United States.” Since the Red Rock Ranger District of the Coconino National Forest, where Vaustin reportedly journeyed through, is on U.S. soil, then it’s grounds for punishment; and said punishment can prove to be brutal. The maximum: a $5,000 fine and/or SIX MONTHS BEHIND BARS. Y-I-K-E-S.
