This year in May, a San Diego freeway sign was vandalized with a banner in protest of SeaWorld’s mistreatment of killer whales. The sign that indicated that SeaWorld Drive is 2 miles away instead read “SeaWorld sucks.”

In a new video posted by ‘Jackass’ star Steve-O on his YouTube channel, the TV prankster reveals that he was the one behind it, telling his audience that he was “putting his foot down for Shamu.”

Shown is Steve-O printing the banner, climbing up to the sign using many different methods, and then finally taping the banner to the sign.

“If this is wrong, I don’t want to be right,” he yells after his prank is over. “Screw you SeaWorld!”

In the description box of the video, he asks his viewers to share the video and to wish him luck with the law. However, it does not look like he will be too lucky.

California Highway Patrol is pressing charges against Steve-O, since the prank was “defacing public property at a cost to state taxpayers an unlawful act and a dangerous distraction for motorists.”
