Herky statue vandal to face felony charge

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa City police say they've identified a suspect in the vandalism of a Herky statue and expect to file a felony charge.

Police are in the process of contacting the alleged vandal, who is accused of damaging the "Organic Herky" statue located downtown.

Authorities say they won't release a name until the person is formally charged. The expected charge is second-degree criminal mischief.

Iowa City police officer David Schwindt says the suspect apparently punched agriculture-themed, fiberglass statue, which caused its ankles to crack.

The Iowa City Area Convention and Visitors Bureau has removed the statue for repairs, which will cost an estimated $1,300. The statue is one of 83 included in the Herky on Parade displays.
