A man climbed the "D" in the Hollywood sign on Wednesday evening carrying a flag that reads "I'm back."
He was taken into custody for trespassing, LAPD Officer Wilhelm tells The Hollywood Reporter, and an investigation is ongoing.
Zdorovetskiy was linked to the climbing stunt because of Snapchat videos he was filming along his climb and a tweet he posted on Tuesday:

The YouTube star was followed by helicopters shortly after his climb and taken into custody immediately after coming down from the letter "D."
