Earlier this year, the much in love celebrity couple Vanessa Hudgens and Austen Butler took a trip to the Coconino National Forest park in Arizona to spend Valentine's Day. They carved their names 'Austin + Vanessa' on a red rock of the famous red rock formations of the national park. They shared a photo of the carving on Instagram from Vanessa's account as well.
Lesser did they know, this seemingly lovely act would land them in a legal trouble. Carving on the red rocks is forbidden under the US Forest Service Land and thus, Vanessa has been fined $1000 for carving a drawing of a heart on the rocks.
Coconino National Forest Service spokesman Brady Smith said, "This incident is currently under investigation, so there is not much I can share specifically since I am not privy to the details of an investigation until it is complete. However, I can say that the issue of people carving their names and other things in rocks in the Sedona and surrounding area is always a challenge we face, and try to inform people about its destructive nature. We have found that when one person carves something, it encourages others to carve."
