Previously Glover was detained for defacing a San Diego freeway sign from “Sea World Drive” to “Sea World Sucks” in May.
LAPD Lt. Michael Ling confirmed that Glover is expected to be booked on suspicion of trespassing, setting a firework without permit and conspiracy to commit a crime. Said Ling, “We have other people we need to attend to. It’s a mess” after more than 800 firefighters were called to the scene of reports of a potential suicide.
“I thought this Facebook Live was supposed to be a big deal,” said Steve-O.
