Looks like someone is not a huge fan of our current president -- according to ABC News, Obama's West Los Angeles office was vandalized last night.

A witness called the cops after reportedly hearing the sounds of breaking glass and seeing an object being thrown through the window. Officers think that a BB gun may have been used as well.

The incident happened at about 7:25 p.m., and the office is located at 6700 block of South Centinela Avenue in Westchester. No one was inside the office when the vandalism took place, and no one was hurt.

Obama is scheduled to be in L.A. next Monday.
