Someone Defaced A Street Sign In Texas To Say Burt Reynolds Dr.

September 26, 2018

Burt Reynolds was a Hollywood legend, and it was a sad day hearing that he had passed away earlier this month. 

Someone down in Austin, Texas wanted to help everyone remember the late great actor in what was probably not the best way. Tuesday afternoon it was discovered that someone had defaced the B.R. Reynolds Dr. street sign in downtown. They had added a small U and T, having the sign read Burt Reynolds Dr. instead.  

Though a decent prank it was, it is still considered vandalism. Transportation officials have said that their street and signs crew are preparing to replace the sign.
