A city council candidate in St. Paul, Minn., was arrested on Monday for allegedly sharing a topless photo of his wife on his campaign website.

WCCO, a local CBS affiliate, reported that David Martinez, who is running as an Independent, was arrested for felony non-consensual dissemination of private sexual images.

The article goes on to state the following:

“They presented me with a restraining order (see attached) that my wife had filed with the District Court. CRAZY!!!,” the post read, as first reported by The Minneapolis Star Tribune. “Fabricated/made-up most of the testimony contained within the restraining order. I am shocked and amazed that someone can make up a story just so they can kick someone out of their own home … and take the kids away.”

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports:

David Martinez …  appears to have posted a semi-nude photo of his estranged wife on his campaign website, along with a detailed description of their marital conflicts.

His wife’s affadavit, attached to the restraining order, describes what she said was a physical assault that occurred in their basement on July 4 while their children were upstairs. She said that he followed her into the laundry room, grabbed her around the neck and shoved her into a shelving unit. He threatened to physically throw her out of the house, and she left, she said.

The posting, which is on the blog portion of the website, also includes a link to a restraining order she has against him. Neither Martinez nor his wife could immediately be reached for comment.
