SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A county prosecutor says he's delaying a decision on possible charges in the case of two former Boy Scout leaders accused of toppling one of the unique rock formations at Goblin Valley State Park.

Emery County Attorney David Blackwell announced late Wednesday that had received a full report from investigators for the state parks agency, but wasn't ready to make a decision on any charges until after the holidays.

Blackwell previously said he was looking to make the decision this week, but that he was struggling to find any charge that applies to the toppling of a rock formation.

The October toppling was made infamous by a YouTube video. It was filmed by one Scout leader as the other pushes over the mushroom-shaped rock pillar.
