Feb 17, 2016  •  Post A Comment

Actress Vanessa Hudgens, known for playing Gabriella Montez in the “High School Musical” TV series, is “between a rock and a hard place” after a Valentine’s Day gesture may have broken federal law, ET reports.

“The 27-year-old actress and her 24-year-old boyfriend, Austin Butler, allegedly carved their names in a heart into a rock formation in Sedona, Arizona, over Valentine’s Day weekend,” the story reports, adding: “A public affairs officer for Coconino National Forest tells ET the incident involving Hudgens and Butler ‘is under investigation.'”

The report quotes the officer saying: “Officials at the Coconino National Forest became aware of the incident [Monday] when the media alerted them of the situation. There is no deadline for this investigation — it takes as long as it takes. The maximum punishment for this is $5k and/or 6 months behind bars.”

Hudgens posted a photo of the carving on Instagram (see below), but deleted it after it sparked negative feedback. However, the photo had already begun circulating online, apparently catching the attention of authorities.
