Interesting scope failure

I had an interesting scope failure this evening after getting my deer rifle out of the safe in preparation for tomorrow. The last time I used the rifle, I was shooting a steel target at 400 yards and had the magnification turned up. I like to hunt with the magnification at the lowest setting, so I turned the ring down. Something didn't feel quite right, so I turned it back up and noticed the reticle had rotated about 45 degrees. The scope was tight in its rings and when I turned the magnification back down, the reticle rotated slightly back towards level. Turning the ring back up caused the reticle to move another 45 degrees so it's almost 90 degrees rotated from level. The scope is a Prostaff BDC.

Has anyone else had a similar failure where the reticle rotates when adjusting the magnification?
