Vanessa Hudgens, who recently appeared as tough girl Rizzo on Grease Live! just one day after her father passed away from cancer, is now facing charges after she posted an Instagram photo revealing a crime she committed.
It appears Vanessa and her partner-in-crime, longtime boyfriend Austin Butler, allegedly defaced a red rock formation in Arizona’s Coconino National Forest by carving the inscription “Austin + Vanessa” on the surface, surrounded by a heart.
She posted a photo of the rock on her Instagram on Sunday, but quickly removed it after receiving backlash.
Brady Smith, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service, said authorities are investigating the incident. If found guilty of damaging a natural feature in the 250 square-mile Red Rock Ranger District, Vanessa and/or Austin face up to six months in jail and a maximum $5,000 fine.
Vanessa rose to fame in Disney’s High School Musical series of movies, and Austin has appeared in shows such as Zoey 101 and Switched at Birth. He is currently starring in MTV’s new action series, The Shannara Chronicles.
