Police reportedly arrested 22-year-old Taylor Galary Tuesday morning after kicking the installation. The display, by artist Kyu Seok Oh, features a flock of 24 sheep sculptures which was erected this week at the Broadway Pedestrian Plaza to coincide with the Armory Art Show.
Galary reportedly tried to flee in a taxi but was spotted by a Times Square Alliance public safety officer who quickly flagged down a police officer.

The post generated 13 “likes” and one user commented, “[W]ho’d have thought it was easier to make an escape on the subway than a cab….plus i lost a shoe!!”
Oh quickly repaired the damaged artwork — which took him 10 months to create the sculptures.
“This is not a museum, not a gallery — this is Times Square,” Oh told DNAinfo.
He said he prefers people “hugging” and “touching” the sheep. The installation will remain on display in Times Square through March 7.MORE NEWS: Mets Get All-Star Javier Báez, Trevor Williams From Cubs For Outfield Prospect
