I would doubt it was done intentionally by anyone. The sway bar goes from one side to the other side of the vehicle and connects to each side lower control arms with the links. It's possible that you may have hit something on the road and it got bent, or something could be binding on the arm and causing it to bend. If you want to have an independent mechanic come out and take a look at the situation, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to inspect your steering and suspension and advise you on what repairs are needed.
