VIDEO: 'Idiots' surf Venice's Grand Canal, mayor offers dinner to whoever finds them
A video of two men surfing the Grand Canal in Venice, which is strictly prohibited, appeared on social media these days. This left the city's mayor, Luigi Brugnaro, quite nervous.
Brugnaro said he was looking for the "two overbearing idiots" who filmed themselves surfing the Grand Canal. He says he will treat whoever finds and identifies the two men to dinner, reports "The Guardian".
Ecco two imbecilli prepotenti che si fanno beffa della Città… cheido a tutti di aiutarci a individuarli per punirli anche se le nostre armi sono davvero spontate… servono urgentemente più poteri ai Sindaci in tema sicurezza pubblica!
A chi li individua offro una cena! pic.twitter.com/DV2ONO3hUs

"Here are the two overbearing idiots who are making a mockery of this city," Brugnaro wrote. "I'm asking everyone to help us identify and punish them, mayors urgently need more powers in terms of public safety."
Local media reports that the two men were caught and punished yesterday.
