PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 James Otis is freed on bail charged with vandalising Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Otis, who admits he has a record of arrests for civil disobedience, says he did it for the women who've accused Trump of groping them. (SOUNDBITE)(English) JAMES OTIS SAYING: "There are no consequences for him. 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." Trump's name was scratched off the star, which also suffered several chips and its central emblem was dislodges. Trump was awarded the star in 2007 for his role in the NBC show 'The Apprentice'. Trump's also inspiring a less-than-flattering new artwork in Mexico by nude installation photographer Spencer Tunick. He's planning a large-scale shoot of nude models in face-down pose. (SOUNDBITE)(English) SPENCER TUNICK, PHOTOGRAPHER, SAYING: "Hopefully they will only be inverted for a little while, just like Trump is inverting our minds and causing us a nerve-wracking internal hysteria." Tunick and scores of local residents in San Miguel De Allende plan to come together for the big show during Friday.
