Ohio city gives owner 30 days to collect naked Trump statue

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) - Authorities have given the owner of a naked Donald Trump statue 30 days to claim it along with a minor misdemeanor citation.

Cleveland.com reports (http://bit.ly/2bCoPxd ) the statue of the Republican presidential nominee that made a brief appearance Thursday in front of a Cleveland Heights bank is now being stored at that city's police department.

The city's police chief says the owner could face a fine for breaking a city code that prohibits placing items and equipment on public property.

Life-size naked Trump statues also made appearances in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle and Cleveland on Thursday. They are the brainchild of an activist collective called INDECLINE, which has spoken out against Trump and his candidacy.
