    The guy who infamously altered the iconic Hollywood sign to read "Hollyweed" has been arrested Monday afternoon.



    Zach Fernandez turned himself in at LAPD's Hollywood station with his attorney in tow. He was booked for misdemeanor trespassing, and released after posting a $1,000 bond.

    Zach pulled the stunt on New Year's Day, and while he was praised by fellow weed smokers ... he
    quickly felt the heat from cops.

    Fernandez said that his prank - which he made at 3am on New Year's Day - was a tribute to artist Daniel Finegood, who first made the sign read 'Hollyweed' exactly 41 years before, for art college.
    'I felt his message speak to me and it felt like that message needed to be shared,' Fernandez said.
    'It was honestly just a work of art, but it becomes so much more because of people's interpretations of it. Pot art. That's what it is.'
    Fernandez made the alteration by hauling large pieces of black and white tarp up the mountain to the iconic sign, draping them across the center and bottom-right of the last too 'O's to turn them into lowercase 'e's.

    He had bolted out of town after promising to meet with detectives.
