Fort Worth man arrested for breaking into State Capitol, damaging portrait

A Fort Worth man was arrested for allegedly breaking into the State Capitol and damaging a portrait of a former governor, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

DPS officials say Tanner Christian Graeber was seen climbing up construction scaffolding on the south side of the capitol building around 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

Graeber, 22, allegedly broke a second-floor window, entered the building and damaged a portrait of former Gov. Fletcher Stockdale.

Graeber was arrested "without incident" and booked into the Travis County Jail on two felony charges.

An interesting note: Fletcher Stockdale served as Texas governor for only three months in 1865.
