WATCH: Tourist Damages 200 Year Old Statue in Italy for Photo Op


An Austrian tourist is now in police custody after damaging a 200 year old statue at a museum in Italy. The tourist is seen in the security footage leaning on the statue while someone takes a photo, and realizing that something fell from the statue after he pushes himself up to his feet. You can see in the footage that he's trying to be nonchalant as he casually walks way, never to alert authorities of the damage done to the statue. The tourist broke a number of toes off the invaluable statue, and will remain in police custody until Italian officials decide how best to proceed with his punishment. THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS!
