CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson University police have released security camera video of a white pickup truck that investigators believe is linked to the vandalism of one of the school's most beloved symbols -- Howard's Rock.

The video shows the truck pull up to the fence outside the stadium near the rock about 11:20 p.m. June 2. Two men get out. A second video with a timestamp about 10 minutes later shows two men walking and dancing around outside the pickup before driving off.

Police also released a still picture of the pickup.

The rock's glass case was damaged and a chunk of it was broken off. Clemson football players rub the rock named for former football coach Frank Howard as they run down the stadium's hill before the start of every football game.
