HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles ® ) – Law enforcement is a serious business in Germany and the United States. Even sculptures must follow the law.

In the German city of Karlsruhe, an overzealous officer slapped a sculpture with a parking ticket.  The sculpture of a bent red Mercedes-Benz food truck is that of Austrian artist Erwin Wurm who is famous for his humurous sculptural treatments of iconic vehicles that are stretched, inflated, and twisted into seemingly impossible shapes. It was cited for illegal parking.

Thousands of miles away, in the city of Hollywood, California, Arnold Schwarzenegger was issued a police citation inside the world-famous Madam Tussauds Wax Museum on Hollywood Boulevard.  The former California governor and star of the new movie, ‘Terminator Genisys,’ was cited for impersonating a wax sculpture.

Schwarzenegger posed as himself, pretending to be a wax sculpture, occasionally coming to life to the surprise of museum visitors.

As he was led out of the museum, Schwarzenegger told the crowd, “I will be back!”
