BENNINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A group searching for a front-row seat got into a bit of trouble early Thursday morning.

The Bennington Police Department posted surveillance footage of the town’s big chair getting damaged. They say they are trying to find two men and two women responsible.

Officers say the group climbed onto the large chair outside the Tri State Area Federal Credit Union on Washington Avenue just before 3:30 a.m. Thursday.

The group broke the seat and one woman was hurt and had to be carried away.

The chair is a replica of the original ladderback chair that stood outside the former Haynes & Kane Furniture store for 30 years.
