Warner Wolf, a longtime athlete, was arrested this week in Florida for allegedly removing letters from a sign in his private community that wrote the word "plantation", officials said.
The 81-year-old Wolf turned to Thursday on the cover of a letter from the word "Classical Plantations" in eastern Naples on November 30, officials said.
"He had an opinion on how this was a racist word, and he did not feel that it should be on behalf of (a) the community, even though a large community in Florida uses this name," said Ken Heff, director of real estate. News.

In the report on the arrest he also said that Wolf's word is aggressive because of its historical context, says WINK-TV Fort Myers.
Wolf allegedly jumped into the community fountain and used a word-removing tool, they reported from the station. On December 13, he drove to the door in the community and handed over to the security guard a broken letter of "plantations" with instructions to give them to the manager, they reported from the arrest report.
He is facing a criminal offense, an arrest report from the district office of Collier County.
