SIOUX CITY (KWWL) -

Two men face felony charges for allegedly vandalizing a memorial to the 1989 crash of United Airlines Flight 232 in Sioux City.

Scott Coleson, of Lehigh, and Felipe Sebastian, of South Sioux City, Neb., are suspected of pushing over a boulder at the memorial at a park early Wednesday. Both are charged with criminal mischief.

The boulder is one of eight leading up to a statue commemorating the 1989 crash, which killed 112 people.

The city says it will cost $3,000 to replace the cracked boulder.
