Hasta la vista pits! Arnold Schwarzenegger fills hole in LA street after weeks of damage to cars and bikes amid local services inactivity
The Terminator has traded his shotgun for a shovel.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was seen in a social media clip on Tuesday literally taking to the streets to fill a problematic pothole that was a pox for the neighborhood.
“Today, after the entire neighborhood was upset about this giant pothole that has been ruining cars and bikes for weeks, I set out with my team to fix it,” the 75-year-old community action star wrote in the post.
The Austrian-born star, who served as California’s 38th governor from 2003 to 2011, said he would rather address the issue head-on than grumble about it.
“I always say, let’s not complain, let’s do something about it,” he said. ‘Please.’
