That’s a penalty for Warner Wolf.

The longtime sportscaster was arrested Thursday for removing letters that spelled out “Plantation” on both sides of a sign at the private community where he lives in Florida, according to a Collier County Sheriff’s Office report obtained by the Daily News.


Wolf, 81, removed the word from the sign at the Classics Plantation Estates community in Naples on Nov. 30, according the report, with an official saying they obtained footage showing a man who fits Warner’s physical profile in the act.

Wolf had been a “vocal critic of the name ‘Plantation’ at board meetings,” the report states, and had advocated for the word to be taken off the sign.

About two weeks after the letters were removed, a man returned them to a security guard at the community’s vehicle gate.

Wolf turned himself in to authorities on Thursday. The damage he allegedly caused was valued at $1,139.50.

His charge is listed as criminal mischief over $1,000.

He left custody on Thursday on a $5,000 bond, jail records show.

Wolf’s lengthy sportscasting career has included working on “Monday Night Baseball” and the Olympics for ABC Sports, and serving as a voice on the radio program “Imus in the Morning.”
