Kayvan Setareh, the man accused of posting a large supergraphic on a building at Hollywood and Highland, spent the weekend in jail while being held on $1 million bail. Today in court, however, bail was reduced to $100,000 because Setareh agreed to take the sign down. At issue is the city's ban on new supergraphics, which went into effect last year. The sign, on the other hand, went up last week without any permits. *Updated Post
