Vanessa Hudgens Broke the Law, So Now She Has to Suffer the Consequences
Valentine’s Day 2016 was a day to remember for Vanessa Hudgens, and not because she spent a blissful 24 hours with her boyfriend, Austin Butler. Sure, the couple shared what we’re sure was a romantic hike through Coconino National Forest, but everything turned to s*it after she posted pictures & a video from the outing:
While the first four Instagram posts still exist on the 27-year-old High School Musical alum’s page, the last was deleted because, apparently, it is illegal to carve your names — or anything, for that matter — into these particular rocks.
As we learned in February, when the desecration took place, 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 is on U.S. soil, then it’s grounds for punishment. And the punishment is about to come through.
Billboard claims that there are two options for the brunette actress: 1. accept the agreement and pay an undisclosed fine and restitution, which can be up to $5,000, or 2. appear in court to answer to the misdemeanor violations of defacing and/or damaging natural features. Officials say that Vanessa “was cooperative in providing the specific location” of the carving, so we’re sure she’ll do the right thing this time, too… whatever that may be. Bet she’ll think twice before she does something like this, as innocent as it may seem, again.
Thankfully, Vanessa won’t be arrested for her crimes… like these former Disney stars:
