The journey of the Olympic torch from Olympia, Greece, to the spot of the games may be one of sports’ greatest traditions. But sometimes, folks have simply had enough.

Police arrested a man Sunday after he tried to put out the Olympic flame as the torch was being run through the town of Maracaju in central Brazil. As seen in the video below, a bucket of water is hurled toward the torch as runners and bystanders look bewildered.

According to the BBC, the 27-year-old man told authorities that the attempt was a result of a dare. The crime can carry a sentence of six months to three years in prison, according to SBS. The man was released on the equivalent of $293 bail.

The torch is in the midst of covering 12,400 miles across 300 Brazilian cities before arriving in Rio for the opening ceremonies Aug. 5. This is the second straight week that the torch has been involved in a dramatic incident, after a jaguar last week was shot and killed following a ceremony during the torch relay.
