Porn Video Playing on I-75 Digital Billboard in Detroit Metro

The two hooded characters above and in the surveillance video below, scaled a 6 foot fence, entered a small equipment building sitting below a digital billboard, then accessed the equipment to install a pornographic video.  The hard core ‘show’ appeared last Saturday and ran on both sides of the billboard for approximately 20 minutes. The digital billboard located on Interstate 75 just north of Detroit,  is owned by Triple Communications, whose parent company is Triple Investment Group, which owns the Pontiac Silverdome property.

Auburn Hills Police Lt. Ryan Gagnon said in a press release, “The suspects were captured on video inside the building, where they were able to access a computer and play the pornographic video on the billboard. Officers arrived on scene and witnessed the video being displayed at that time. We were able to contact an emergency contact for the private business, which operates the sign, and they were able to shut down the sign.”

Should the owner or operator of the billboard share in any responsibility for this intrusion? What are reasonable, precautionary and preventative security measures which should be expected of an OOH Owner?
