Officials say the man admitted to taking the signs as a prank but then realized how serious his actions were.

“After talking with this family, it was clear that the young man was truly remorseful for his actions and wanted to atone for his behavior,” said Superintendent Dale Wilkerson. “We made it clear to him that this kind of behavior is unacceptable, but also acknowledged that his desire to admit his wrong and try to right the mistake was the right thing to do. In light of his repentance, and the support of his family, the park will not press charges but will accept community service hours from the young man.”
