"Cape Kiwanda Pedestal: Collapse Could Lead To Fines, Criminal Charges"

"Oregon State Police and Parks officials watched the viral video showing the toppling of a popular sandstone pedestal at Cape Kiwanda earlier this week, and the agencies said Monday they would "review the incident immediately" and decide how to respond to the apparent vandalism.

That response could include park citations of at least $435, according to state parks spokesman Chris Havel. The State Police will handle whether any criminal charges will be filed.

"Rules prohibit visitors from destroying natural features intentionally," Havel said"
