Vanessa Hudgens Reportedly Pays $1,000 for Defacing Red Rocks in Sedona

By
Vanessa Hudgens has paid the price for her illegal romantic gesture.
The 27-year-old Grease: Live! actress compensated $1,000 for defacing a red rock wall in Sedona, Arizona, according to the Associated Press.
The money was reportedly used to repair the rock wall by a volunteer group called Friends of the Forest. The agreement was approved on April 19 by a federal magistrate in Flagstaff.
The investigation began back in February after Hudgens and her boyfriend, Austin Butler, carved a heart with their names in it into Bell Rock during a Valentine's Day getaway at the popular tourist spot. Hudgens shared a photo of the carving on Instagram but has since deleted the post.
Hudgens received a citation for a misdemeanor count of damaging a natural feature on U.S. Forest Service land. At the time, a public affairs officer for Coconino National Forest told ET that officials became aware of the incident "when the media alerted them of the situation."
"There is no deadline for this investigation -- it takes as long as it takes," the officer added. "The maximum punishment for this is $5k and/or 6 months behind bars."
ET has reached out to Hudgens' reps for comment.
