It appears the beheading of a Garfield statue was accidental, according to an Associated Press story linked on

When the Marion, Ind.-based statue was decapitated in mid-December, police first thought it was a case of deliberate vandalism. But the AP reported that a 22-year-old man confessed to police that he hugged the statue in a “crazy” way, its head fell off, he panicked, and then took the head and left it alongside a road in another location.

The $8,500 statue was unveiled in October. Marion is in the home county of “Garfield” creator Jim Davis, whose cat comic appears in more than 2,600 newspapers via Universal Press Syndicate.
