LOS ANGELES, Calif. (AP) - Fed up with an enormous pothole that plagued his Los Angeles neighborhood for years, Arnold Schwarzenegger grabbed a shovel to fill it.
The actor, former California Governor tweeted a Tuesday video of him and an assistant using packaged concrete to fix the road in Brentwood.
He wrote on Twitter: 'Today I fixed the giant pothole in my neighborhood that has caused cars and bikes to be damaged for weeks. My team and I repaired it.' I always say: Let's not moan, but let's fix it. Here you go.'
The neighbor who rolled down the window of her car shouted at him.
Schwarzenegger said, "You're welcome," wearing work boots, leather jackets and sunglasses reminiscent of the role he played in "Terminator."
You have to do it all yourself. It's crazy. "I've waited three weeks for this hole to close," he said.
Daniel Ketchell is a Schwarzenegger spokesperson. He said Brentwood residents have repeatedly requested repairs after winter storms exposed potholes and cracked roads.
Last week, Mayor Karen Bass announced a plan for repairing what she described as an unprecedented number damaged streets in the city. Los Angeles received 19692 requests for repair since Dec. 30. As of April 6, crews filled at least 17549 potholes.
When asked if the pothole Schwarzenegger repaired was scheduled for repair, the Department of Public Works didn't immediately reply to an email.
