Someone vandalized UCF's Pegasus statue and the whole thing was caught on video

The Pegasus statue in front of the Burnett Honors College at the University of Central Florida was recently bent out of shape, and some cameras caught it all on tape, Knight News reports. 

The college is offering a $100 reward for tips identifying the two men in the video. The video below shows the men going by the statue when one of them tries to take a joyride on it while the other snaps a photo. It does not end well for the Pegasus, and the two hightail it out of there.
