From Facebook. Tip-o-the-hat to @ShainaLovesMKE on Twitter for the pointer! More as I learn it.

UPDATE: I spoke to the on-duty Sergeant at the West Bend police department and got the following details:

•Incident happened at a residence in West Bend just after noon Sunday

•30-year-old male

•He is still in jail

•Charged with 2 felony counts of defacement of a recall petition

•Apparently, according to a witness to the incident, he scribbled all over the petitions trying to deface the signatures,

UPDATE 2: The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has the story and reports on the incident today.
