Students arrived at campus the first day of the quarter to find the infamous Egghead statues had been “pepper sprayed.”
The statues, created by sculptor Robert Arneson, had been spray painted with what appeared to be orange spray paint, clearly intended to represent the pepper spray incident of Nov. 18. Statues in front of Shields Library and Mrak Hall were among those vandalized.
Andy Fell of the UC Davis News Service said that any vandalism incident on campus is reported on and investigated.
According to the police, the incident took place sometime between 6 p.m. Sunday and 7 a.m. Monday.
The statues have since been cleaned and the spray paint is no longer visible. Police are investigating the incident.
