New York, (ANI): Jessica Alba has apologised for plastering shark-conservation posters around Oklahoma City. The Fantastic Four actress has issued an apology after the stunt got publicised on the web, and even sparked a police investigation. "I got involved in something I should have had no part of," the New York Daily News quoted the actress as saying in a statement on Tuesday.
She added: "I realize that I should have used better judgment and I regret not thinking things through before I made a spontaneous and ill-advised decision to let myself get involved with the people behind this campaign." The actress was forced to say sorry when police opened a probe into the giant shark posters and online photos that showed Alba with buckets of glue at the vandalism sites.
"A number of shark posters were placed around downtown with heavy-duty glue, making them darn near impossible to get off," said Sgt. Gary Knight of the Oklahoma City Police. He added: "It's basically a vandalism case that could involve our new tagger laws. It will be assigned to a detective, and then we'd send it to the District Attorney's office."
Knight said that the 3-by-2-foot posters of great white sharks were slapped on a bridge, electrical boxes and on a United Way billboard. Although he didn't identify Alba by name, a police report clearly described the photos of Alba that later appeared on a blog for the conservation group White Mike.
The group was finally identified online before a local news Web site called TheLostOgle.com posted the Alba photos Monday. But the photos then disappeared from the White Mike blog. Alba is in Oklahoma to film the psychological thriller The Killer Inside Me.
