Police: Suburban man arrested after painting over Pride-styled fire hydrant
GENEVA, Ill. — A man was arrested Friday for allegedly painting over a Pride-styled fire hydrant in Geneva.
At around noon, Geneva police responded to the area of Kirk and State on the report of a defacement. Police said a fire hydrant, which was a part of the “Art of Fire” program, was styled to honor Pride.
Residents have painted more than 100 hydrants throughout Geneva during the past 10 years.
Following a short investigation, police believe Jonathan Darmstadt, 55, of Plainfield, was responsible.
He was charged with two counts of criminal defacement of property.
