(WWJ) The Toledo Blade reports that a boat owned by the family of U.S.. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos was vandalized over the weekend.

It was moored at dock in Huron, Ohio, when someone untied it from the dock, and pushed it off into the sunset.

"The Seaquest was moored at the Huron Boat Basin, 330 Main St., according to a police report," the Blade reported. "The captain of the 163-foot yacht, worth a reported $40 million, called police at about 6 a.m.. Sunday, telling them that he and the crew realized at sunrise that someone had untied Seaquest from the dock, setting it adrift."

By the time the staff was able to commandeer the yacht, it had struck the dock, causing an estimated $5,000 to $10,000 in damage from large scratches and scrapes, according to the police report.

DeVos', the secretary of education under President Donald Trump, is a divisive figure who has drawn criticism for perceived lack of knowledge about her job, and the kind of out of touch bearing that comes with being a billionaire.
