A porno played on a Michigan digital billboard after two white males broke into a billboard computer room and played the movie on the billboard, according to Auburn Hills, Michigan police. At least one driver told a Detroit news station that he nearly wrecked after seeing the billboard.
It has been determined through our investigation that two suspects entered a small building, which houses a computer that runs the content for the digital billboard, located underneath the sign. The suspects forced entry into the building, which is also secured by a 6 foot fence. 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.
The image below depicts the two suspects from the video: It should be noted that the suspects entered the building at 10:49 pm on Saturday, September 28, 2019 and the date/time on the video is not correct. The suspects were inside the building for approximately 15 minutes before leaving. The suspects appear to be young white males, wearing hoodies and both wearing glasses. The camera had a night vision function on it, so it is unknown what color clothing the suspects were wearing.
On September 28, 2019 at about 11:00 pm, the Auburn Hills Police Department received reports from drivers that a freeway electronic billboard sign was displaying a pornographic video. The billboard is located on the east side of I-75, south of M-59, which displays a digital image facing both north and south. 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. We believe that the video may have been playing for at least 15 to 20 minutes before it was turned off.
Here’s video of what was playing on that billboard.
So apparently someone was playing porn on a billboard off I-75…

Update to the pornographic billboard story:
Just talked to @AHPOLICE – they say the 2 people in this video broke into a shed that is under the billboard on I-75 & hacked into the computer system to play the offensive video.
