Grand Canyon Authorities Called Out Sigmond for Hitting Golf Balls in the National Park
The influencer posted the video of hitting a golf ball into the Grand Canyon on October 26, 2022. In the visual, she was seen standing on the border overlooking the South Rim and shooting a golf ball. The National Park authorities then identified her with the help of people on the internet.
The authorities said that throwing objects into the Grand Canyon is illegal as it can harm wildlife and hikers. “Do we really need to say, ‘don’t hit golf balls into the Grand Canyon?’ On October 26, an individual posted a video to her personal TikTok page showing her hitting a golf ball and throwing a golf club into the canyon near Mather Point,” they said in a statement.
“On October 27, Grand Canyon Law Enforcement identified, located and contacted the individual responsible for the incident. Charges and a court appearance for the individual are pending. Throwing objects over the rim of the canyon is not only illegal but can also endanger hikers and wildlife who may be below,” they added.
Sigmond was charged with disorderly conduct and littering. The case was settled outside of court, and the influencer was asked to pay a fine.
