Two tourists were arrested for speeding down Venice’s Grand Canal on motorized surfboards Wednesday morning after the Italian city’s mayor blasted the duo on social media as “imbeciles.”

Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro posted a video of the surfers zipping past water buses and taxis and promised to buy dinner for anyone who identified them.

In another clip shared on social media, one of the surfers fell off his board under the Accademia Bridge, but made sure to keep his phone out of the water to film his cohort’s exploits.

Brugnaro wrote that the suspects were “two overbearing imbeciles who are making a mockery of the city.”

The suspects were apprehended later that day, fined $1,530 each and expelled from the city. They also had their expensive electric propeller boards confiscated and were facing further legal action for damaging the city’s image, officials said in a statement.
