Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame before it was bashed by a sledgehammer.
A videotape taken Thursday and uploaded to YouTube showed the unidentified female supporter, wearing dark glasses and a gray hoodie, sitting silently on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue, apparently to protect Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The video prompted angry calls to police asking why they didn't intervene.
The video shows a woman collapsing on the Hollywood Walk of Fame where she staged a one-woman Trump rally.
A man bumps against her, she pushes back and falls to the ground, staying there as the crowd jeers.
McGuire said investigators are still trying to determine when the incident occurred but believe it occurred after the star was vandalized on Tuesday.
On that day, Im said, the woman also incited the crowd with what he called racial slurs.
Trump?s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Vandal Arrested
"He thinks he's in charge all the time, he makes lies, he's a serial liar, a misogynist, and that's why we're here, to try to address that and help those women who have told Mr Trump they won't stand for it any more", Otis said yesterday.
"When people are unhappy with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways than to vandalize a California State landmark", Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Leron Gubler wrote in a statement. "If she's a victim, she has a right to come forward".
Otis, who claimed that he is an heir to the Otis Elevator family, described how he devised a plan before he hammered Trump's star on October 26 morning.
Trump has denied the groping allegations made against him, saying there is no evidence to support the women's claims.
Another officer confirmed to ABC News that the suspect's name is James Otis, the same man who told Deadline Hollywood that he was responsible for the damage.
Otis said he did it because he was sick of Trump's "aggressive language and sexual violence toward women".
