WACO, Texas (KWTX) A vandal knocked Waco’s ESPN Central Texas radio off the air late Thursday night, the station’s program director said.

David Smoak said on Twitter numerous wires and cables were cut, knocking the station off the air indefinitely.

The station’s security cameras recorded video of a man driving a white BMW that displayed a University of Texas Longhorns logo.

By Friday morning, the station’s internet was up and running and Smoak said the staff was working on a few options to get a signal to the tower at the station.

“This had zero to do with anything UT, that logo is a specific description on the back of the car and one that could help in the end. But, yes, this is beyond annoying for all of us @1660ESPN,” Smoak tweeted.
