By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A man arrested on Thursday for defacing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles with a sledgehammer and a pickax said he did it because he was angry at the candidate. James Otis, 52, speaking to reporters a short time after he was released from jail on $20,000 bail, also said he did it to show support for women who have accused Trump of groping them. Otis was arrested for felony vandalism and is due in court on Nov. 18, authorities said.
