David Letterman’s theater on Broadway — the famed Ed Sullivan Theater — was trashed by an allegedly drunken 22-year-old man early Sunday morning, reports the New York Post.
James Whittemore reportedly broke glass panes in three out of four of the theater’s double-door sets, and knocked over garbage pails and velvet-rope stanchions. He was apparently unable to gain access to the studio because of padlocks on the doors.
Police apprehended Whittemore at the scene and brought him to a hospital for treatment for a cut on his head, the story says.
Letterman’s production company, Worldwide Pants, and CBS said in a statement that the vandalism would not prevent Monday’s taping of ‘Late Show With David Letterman." The program’s scheduled guests include "Harry Potter" actress Emma Watson and actor Chris Evans from "Captain America."
