James Whittemore pleaded guilty Monday to a misdemeanor criminal-mischief charge. He has paid roughly $7,000 in restitution and gotten alcohol-abuse treatment.
The 22-year-old is accused of smashing the glass doors and damaging the lobby last month.
Alvin Moore faces burglary and criminal mischief charges. Police say Moore told them he was upset because Letterman hadn’t responded to a number of demo tapes he sent him.
The man who broke into and vandalized the lobby of the Ed Sullivan Theater last weekend said he can’t remember the incident, and offered a public apology to the people at the “Late Show with David Letterman.”
The accused, identified by police as 22-year-old James Whittemore, is captured on video breaking into the home of the “Late Show” early Sunday morning and then going on a rampage.
A metal bar on the glass doors at the Broadway entrance to the theater was pried open and the glass was smashed. Trash cans and the stanchions for velvet ropes inside the lobby were knocked over. The vestibule was also reportedly damaged.
