Growing up, the 20-year-old Costa Mesa resident enjoyed playing soccer. Videos of her golf stroke on TikTok now have millions of views.
However, golf has recently gotten her in trouble with the law. Katie shared a video of herself smashing a golf ball into the Grand Canyon on social media in October.
Her post was reposted by the national park, who added a critical caption. The account said, “Do we really need to say, ‘don’t hit golf balls into the Grand Canyon?'”
“On October 26, a user uploaded a video of herself swinging a golf club into a canyon close to Mather Point on her personal TikTok page.”
They claimed that when the public assisted them in locating Sigmond, the police got in touch with her to discuss a punishment.
“On October 27, Grand Canyon Law Enforcement found, tracked down, and contacted the incident’s perpetrator. The person is expected to appear in court and face charges.
According to AZ Central, Sigmond was issued three federal warnings and charged with three Class B misdemeanors, including littering, throwing things into the Grand Canyon, and acting unruly in a way that put other people in danger.
These allegations are punishable by a $5,000 fine and six months in prison. Sigmond was sentenced to pay a $285 fine, plus $60 in processing expenses.
While she was first summoned to appear in U.S. District Court, she settled the matter by paying fines to the Central Violations Bureau.
Following her run-in with the police, Sigmond was able to resolve all of her legal charges, resulting in a clean record and the ability to refocus on her career.
The US Sun has contacted Sigmond for comment on the event.
