More than 100 riders were stuck on the San Diego Zoo’s “Skyfari Aerial Tram” gondola ride Saturday in what authorities said was a case of suspected vandalism.

Four men, between ages 20 and 24, were later arrested in connection with the case, FOX 5 of San Diego reported. They were charged with suspicion of vandalism, the report said.

The suspects allegedly were “rocking back and forth” in their gondola, knocking their gondola out of alignment with the support cable and causing the entire ride to shut down for more than an hour, a witness claimed, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
