ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A City Council candidate in St. Paul, Minnesota, has been arrested on suspicion of violating the state's revenge porn law after a topless picture of his estranged wife was posted to his campaign website.
Police say David Martinez was arrested at his office Monday, two days after a post on his website that included the photo and reported that she had obtained a restraining order against him.
Martinez had already been banned from the city's libraries following his July 5 arrest at a downtown location. He also was thrown out of Target Field in Minneapolis on July 6 and banned for a year after a confrontation with security.
Martinez did not respond to a call and email seeking comment. Mayor Melvin Carter has called on him to end his campaign.
