Man Arrested For Vandalizing Dave Letterman’s Studio
Well, that’s not very funny.
NBC New York reports that, early Sunday morning, Whittemore pried open a metal bar outside the historic theater’s entrance; he allegedly smashed glass panels on the doors and overturned stanchions in the lobby. Authorities believe Whittemore was intoxicated at the time.
“We were notified that NYPD apprehended an intruder who gained access and vandalized the lobby of the Ed Sullivan Theater this morning,” CBS and Worldwide Pants said in a joint statement Sunday. “The Late Show‘s set was not accessed, however, and the show will be taping as usual tomorrow. We are grateful for the NYPD’s quick and effective response.”
