Fort Wayne mayoral candidate Schrader arrested


Democratic Fort Wayne Mayoral candidate Tommy Schrader was arrested Tuesday night for criminal mischief.

Police were called by employees at the Jeff’s Coney restaurant on East State Blvd. after they saw him walking back in front of their business, holding a purple teddy bear and vandalizing the benches outside.

The benches were left with obscenities and Nazi swastikas written on them.

Schrader has since been released from custody on the expectation he will return for a later court hearing.
