Idiot Smashes 120+ Year Old Statue

According to Reuters, some dimbulb decided it would be a good idea to climb up the pedestal of the statue of King Dom Sebastiao at the railway station in Lisbon to take a selfie.
The dingus knocked the statue over, smashing it in the process
The loser ran away, but fortunately was arrested later
He will appear before a judge on a later date

No word yet on what punishment the prosecution will ask for if convicted, though there are many suggestions out there; one would have the selfie taker forced to wear armor and stand on the pedestal in place of the statue until it's fixed.
