The 19-year-old accused of spray painting the Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole statue in Waikiki on Halloween pleaded no contest and was sentenced to two days in jail with credit for time served and four hours of community service.
Police say Andrew Chalaire was booked into jail on Tuesday on a count of fourth-degree criminal property damage. Police say they caught him in the act and video also shows a man vandalizing the statue.
City workers today cleaned the orange graffiti from the statue and applied a wax coating to restore its shine.
The bronze artwork was commissioned by the city in 2001 and unveiled a year later.
