Paris police responded to the plaza on Tuesday, where someone “had thrown some blue dye tablets into and at the fountain,” police department spokesman Curtis Garrett said.
Most of the blue dye coloring was removed, Garrett said, “but it was reported that a specialist would have to be used to remove the coloring from one of the lions’ heads at an estimated cost of $2,500.”
On July 24, the fountain was overflowing with bubbles after someone put “a large amount of a soap substance” into the fountain, producing massive amounts of bubbles during the thunderstorms that the city experienced in the early morning hours.
The bubbles blew across the street and onto the plaza businesses with every gust of wind.
City workers drained the bubbles and cleaned the area, restoring the fountain’s normal appearance.
