Two USC Fans Face 3 Years in Jail for Vandalizing UCLA Bruin Statue

By TheBlast Staff


2/14 -- The mother of Louie Torres, Diana, tells us after a hearing in January the boys were able to cut a deal for 120 hours of community service and a $6,000 fine. Louie also wrote a letter of apology to UCLA.

Two men have been charged with splashing the famous UCLA bruin bear statue with red and yellow paint during rivalry week with USC ... and they don't matriculate to either university.

According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney, Louie Torres and Willie Johnson face one felony count of vandalism over $400 worth of damage after allegedly splashing paint on the statue, including the letters "SC" written in red paint on the statue's mantel. The incident went down in November before the UCLA vs USC football game.

Sources close to the investigation tell The Blast the two guys aren't even students of USC, they're just fans who attend a nearby city college.

Both men were arrested on December 19 and released shortly after. They face up to three years in jail.

For the record ... UCLA beat the Trojans 34 - 27.

Go Bruins!

NFL, fans
