Hours before Trump took the oath of office on Friday, Kelly Weidman allegedly smeared bananas on cars parked at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, the Sun Sentinel reported.

Weidman, 48, of Clearwater, was arrested and charged with trespassing after she allegedly walked onto the private property and smeared the bananas on the parked cars. She had also moved balloons from inside the building to bushes outside as well as typing “F***UTrumpB” on a computer inside the historic estate, according to police.
Weidman allegedly tried to drive onto the Mar-a-Lago estate around 1 a.m. on Friday but was turned away by security, according to the Sun Sentinel. She was asked to leave by security guards who spotted her walking on the grounds of the property around 6:30 a.m.
A U.S. Postal Service employee since 1999, Weidman was then arrested after police were notified at 7:45 a.m. and she refused to leave when they asked her to.
The arrest report indicated that Weidman had showed up in a bar, a ballroom and the beach club at the 18-acre, oceanfront estate which Trump purchased in 1985.
Weidman reportedly wanted to get arrested to draw attention to being “cyber attacked,” according to the arrest report, the Sun Sentinel reported.
She was charged with misdemeanor trespassing and released.
