A vandal destroyed a sand sculpture of Justin Bieber‘s face at the New York State Fair over the weekend and now authorities are searching for the culprit.
ABC 7 News reports that the sand art piece depicted the heads of several notable figures, with Steve Martin to the right of Bieber.
Witnesses said that a man “threw himself into the head of the Justin Bieber sand piece, then ran out the auditorium door”.
Authorities have raised suggestions that the vandal may have been intoxicated or “could have just had a particular issue” with the singer.
